"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

From Publishers Weekly
Simmons--rap impresario and founder of Def Jam Records, Phat Farm, and the Hip-Hop Summit, and with Morrow coauthor of Do You!--explores what it means to be truly rich and fulfilled through two tenets. The twin paths to enlightenment, according to Simmons, are, first, remaining fully conscious and connected to the world, and second, believing that the universe will then reward and flood you with gifts and opportunity--the second precept drawing heavily from the laws of attraction found in such books as The Secret. While these lofty ambitions may seem too fanciful, the steps are sensible and actionable. He encourages readers to re-evaluate what being prosperous means to them and incorporate giving back. Simmons urges readers to move to self-acceptance, live without regrets, and move past worry. With personal stories, he offers insight into his personal striving for peace and prosperity, and offers those willing to put in the effort an opportunity to achieve that same abundance. (Jan.)
