Publisher's Summary

Porsha Williams, entrepreneur and one of today’s most recognizable media personalities, opens up about family, faith, fame, and becoming an agent for change.

Porsha Williams is a remarkable voice in the television and podcast communities. In The Pursuit of Porsha, she takes listeners on a deeply personal journey as she searches for happiness and self-acceptance, giving fans a firsthand look into the defining moments of her life that have not been captured on-screen or in the press.  

Charged with candor, vulnerability, and the sharp wit Porsha is known and loved for, The Pursuit of Porsha brings listeners back to the beginning and along her path of self-reflection and discovery. She details her upbringing as the granddaughter of civil rights activist Hosea Williams and her painful recollections of childhood bullying and gives listeners a look at her search for love and her journey into the spotlight. Porsha shares every moment that has tried - and restored - her faith, over and over again. 

Through it all, Porsha proves that she is more than a soundbite, headline, or rumor. She is an empowering role model to Black women and an icon for women everywhere. In The Pursuit of Porsha, listeners will see Porsha as they have never seen her before.

Just OK

Very mediocre. It didn't feel 100% authentic but more so cliche and contradicting. There were some interesting parts but she never dove deep to capture the audience.

Lack Substance

I’m so happy she got away from Kordell and have blossomed. I was expecting more dept but I didn’t really learn more about Porsha. It seem like she only talked about things that she has already talked about on RHOA.

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY

This book does shed light on some of the thoughts and behind the scenes workings in her life. However, the book details are not aligned with the way Porsha is represented in the world & how she is seen and acts publicly.

Truly an Inspiration

I grew to Love Porsha on the RHOA. However, this book inspired a deeper appreciation for her. Thank you Porsha for being authentically you.

Listen all in one sitting

Okay I maybe bias because I’ve always loved something about Porsha since day one of RHOA. This audiobook was well read and I can appreciate Lauren’s chapters as the read was definitely heavy with a raw honesty I respect. This book just gave more respect to what I already loved about her and humanizes her experiences. Keep going higher, you’re glowing!

interesting read

I enjoyed listening and learning your story. It showed that even though you may see someone on tv, it does not mean you know their story completely.

Lacked substance.

I wanted to like this book but when I saw it was only 5 hours I was skeptical. I feel like Porscha held back when it came to story telling. There was moments when she said she's not going to go into detail so why bring it up then? I feel like we learned more about her on RHOA than in this book. The R. Kelly section was interesting and that was about it
