Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY is organized into a series of fundamental questions that helped Tyrese redefine who he was as a human being, and evolve into a new man. Tyrese stresses that life becomes infinitely richer when one takes the time to know him or herself and understand the true meaning of peace and fulfillment. This book is a guide to helping yourself, using his experiences as a learning tool. "It's not about talking down to people, it's about elevating them," Tyrese says.

Some of Tyrese's chapter-based questions include: How much do you love yourself? How much do you want for yourself? Why do men cheat? What is your bottom line? Are you ready for the next level?

Quotes and Reviews:

"An uplifting and inspirational guide." -Kirkus Reviews

"Tyrese wholeheartedly shares his life experiences and how he discovered a new road map of conscious compassion and love to define his true potential." --Deepak Chopra, author of The Soul of Leadership

"HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY is a triumph. Tyrese will shock and amaze you with how he overcame the odds and became a superstar. This star of the Transformers sequel will show you how to transform your life in this amazingly candid book!" --Rev Run

"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, and I've watched him suffer at his own hand. And in the recent years, as 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

Review:

"This debut from the multi-platinum crooner is so heartfelt and inspirational it will likely leave readers with a new dedication to following their bliss. For Gibson, growing up in the hard-scrabble Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles was like a scene out of the movie Boys in the Hood, without a 'pause' button he could press to make it stop. As a child, he witnessed domestic violence at home and murder and mayhem in the streets. When his precocious singing talents sparked hope, the scrappy young man pursued music with a solitary goal in mind: 'to get out of the hood. I decided that I wanted better for myself and that I didn't want to be like anybody around me.' With his emphasis on self-love, as well as falling in love with one's own ideas in order to execute them, Gibson lays out his modus operandi for success, including everything from organizational strategies and to-do lists to how to give yourself a stern pep talk when you need one. While much of the author's precepts are rooted in his abiding faith, even those without a Judeo-Christian background will be inspired by his swagger. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

About the Author

Tyrese Gibson-known to his legions of fans as "Tyrese"-is an American multi-media entertainer who has been hugely successful as a multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated R&B singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, and fashion model.

Born and raised in the gritty South Central L.A. section of Watts, Tyrese was discovered at the age of fourteen when he won a local talent show. His performance in a 1995 Coke commercial, singing the phrase "Always Coca-Cola," led to worldwide recognition and a longstanding music career. After releasing several award-winning albums, he transitioned into films, first with John Singleton's critically acclaimed Baby Boy, followed by some of Hollywood's biggest movies, including 2 Fast 2 Furious, Four Brothers and Michael Bay's Transformers. Tyrese created the bestselling comic book Mayhem and produced the television show First In.

He is currently working on his sixth studio album.
