Though I can't understand why this beautiful cover was used only for the Japanese release, one look communicates both Duff's complete progression from child star to sophisticated entertainer and the album's effortless sexiness. Equally exciting is Hilary's status as lyricist and co-writer on all of the album's tracks (with the exception of Outside of You, originally intended to be a P!nk track): no one can deny that Dignity is very much Hilary's show. The fantastic part of Hilary Duff's music is its relentless optimism and strength. Not that she doesn't tackle difficult topics -- hardly, two of the album's best tracks (Gypsy Woman and Stranger) directly concern her parents' divorce -- but the listener never gets the impression that Hilary is one to simply accept defeat. Songs like Never Stop single-handedly steamroll every pessimist, pretentious faux-intellectual with the unstoppable force of someone who loves life and knows why. Dignity is incredible. The Japanese import comes with an alternate cover and lyrics booklet and the DJ Kaya remix of With Love.

This book is not for the faint of heart . . . but, then, neither is life. With such unlikely chapter headings as "How to Eat an Elephant," the premise may seem far-fetched, exotic and, well, unappetizing. But is a fascinating argument for the power of optimism, faith, and a plucky attitude to see you through the unthinkable. And, perhaps, daring to think about "what if" is, in and of itself, the primary and crucial step in surviving and thriving.

I was actually lucky enough to see Claudia Shear perform the stage production of this book during its sadly brief Off-Broadway run. But the book. Oh, the book. It is a soul-bearing, heart-breaking triumph of a story, of a life lived boldly, though not always joyously and only intermittently with confidence. That she gains her stride by embracing herself is the simple - and incredibly difficult - secret to her success.
