"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
About the Author
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.

Days later I found myself drawn to the book-opened the cover-started reading the introduction and couldn't put it down. I finished the book in 3 days.
3 days later, I am now a tyrese fan and send out my apologies for "judging a book by it's cover". Tyrese speaks to women and men alike with his words: "How much you love yourself is a direct link to the people you surround yourself with; The way you allow people to treat you." And more importantly the way your body and your home look are direct reflections of your mind-set and how much you love you.
Each word cut like a knife through my brain twisting and turning and cutting out negative thoughts.
I was letting go of my past, my wrong decisions, my wrong thinking with the turn of each page.
Thanks Tyrese for Sharing Your Truth and I apologize emphatically for judging a book by it's cover.
P.S.-I encourage all of you to send a copy of this book to someone who you love enough to help transform their lives through Tyrese's words. In the process, you are also helping Tyrese become a best selling author.
Everyone Buy Two.
It's worth it.
Tyrese also talks about how he almost messes his career up due to being extra selfish and immature..
This book here definitely has the power to change people's lives and surroundings.
High and low therapy all the way through
Tyrese is no different from any of us,he has made mistakes..NO..and CAN'T is not in his vocabulary..
I was personally going through problems when I read this book..
It motivated me to the point of looking for jobs (not run 5 miles yet lol)
But yeah I love the book it is definitely a book worth reading.

What I love MOST about this book is that it talks to me from real life. Tyrese does not talk from some kind of ideal but really from a real human life experience. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Elizabeth
