Gunn is also the New York Times best-selling author of "Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style," "Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work," and "Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet." Gunn released his fourth book, "Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor: A Master Class on Mentoring, Motivating, and Making It Work!" in Spring 2015.
