My brother and mentee, Tyrese Gibson, the triple threat model, actor and Grammy-nominated singer, recently authored his first book, entitled HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY. This engaging book tells the story (the whole story) of Tyrese's life to this point in his maturation and development as entertainer and celebrity, but also father, friend, son, and God's child. Tyrese holds nothing back in the riveting pages of HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY, and is very vulnerable, honest and forthright about both his triumphs, as well as his failures. In other words, the book is "honest."
I am proud to call Tyrese an Ambassador for 5MK (5 MILLION KIDS), the Operation HOPE initiative to break the cycle of high-school dropouts in America, and I am proud to call Tyrese my mentee and friend.
Amongst other engaging stories weaved throughout the book, Tyrese tells parts of the story around his and my relationship, and once you get to the final pages — you will be rooting not only for his continued success, but more so (and this I believe was Tyrese's intent for the book from the start), your own.
Buy the book today, and leave Tyrese a reader book review of your own! You will find Tyrese on the 5MK Make Smart Cool Tour in the summer and fall. Stay tuned.
Praise for HOW TO GET OUT OF HIS OWN WAY
“…Tyrese wholeheartedly shares his life experiences and how he discovered a conscious compassion and love to define his true potential.” –Deepak Chopra, author of The Soul of Leadership
“I've watched Tyrese for many years — I've watched him succeed; I've watched him fail; I’ve seen him as a beneficiary of serendipity, I watched him suffer at his own hand. And in recent years, we've become friends, I've witnessed Tyrese Gibson learn HOW TO GET OUT OF HIS OWN WAY as he wrestled his destiny from the fickle hands of fate.” –Will Smith
