Review

"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

Book Description

Actor, singer and songwriter Tyrese Gibson crafts an inspirational memoir filled with every emotion and life experience one could possibly imagine. Pairing honest and revealing personal stories with reflective questions based on his extremely popular online messages.

Format: Hardcover
Until I completed this book, I never truly knew how I disabled my life by simply making up excuses as to why I couldn't do something. Tyrese with his open, frank view on his life enabled me to look at my life and see where I was preventing growth, take a step back and positively redirect myself towards being the best that I can be and not be scared of failing.

For a private man he opens up himself selflessly for his readers betterment, just enough to allow us to understand why he wrote this book and to direct us to believe in ourselves and do something positive about increasing what we already have and to not be satisfied with anything less. He holds enough back of himself in the book to hold onto his privacy, but still shows he is human and cares about his fans.

I have and do recommend `How To Get Out Of Your Own Way' to all of my family and friends and indeed strangers and now I am recommending it to you! You don't need to be going through a troubling period in your life to get something out of this book, you simply may be curious, but you will want to alter your life once you have read it.

Once I opened it I found it extremely difficult to put it down! It was very easy to read and the messages were clearly written and defined on each page. It helped me and it WILL help you if you read it and allow it to.

I personally thank you Mr Tyrese Gibson, for without your book I believe my belief and trust in my abilities would have some cracks hidden in them in waiting to expand, as I would have been more prone to finding excuses to block my progression.

Just had to say that this book is one of the best books I have read. Right from the beginning it made you feel that you were being spoken to and touched your core. In places it made your heart stop and you could relate to the deep emotions within the words. It is a book that makes you really stop and think about your own life and were you are and how you got there and where you want to be. It opens up your passion to move on and live your life. So true and real it ripped your outer layers away and left you raw in a state of deep realisation and ready to rebuild your life as the book say Getting out of your own way! Totally brilliant thank you Tyrese for helping so many people in such an honest straight forward heart felt way.

Great read! Great read! So good I had to say it twice. I bought this book, just off of being familiar with and enjoying this man's music. Before I bought it, I did my research, watching interviews with Tyrese talking about his book and how he had changed his life for the better. From this, I could see his passion and that he had grown a lot more in a spiritual sense. Finding his interviews intriguing helped me finalise my decision of buying his book and I don't regret it at all or have any negative comments to make about it.
Ultimately, if you're looking for ways to begin self improvement, this book is a great way to start, especially for those in relationships, coming out of one or for singles perhaps looking for ways to deal with past relationships. I found it interesting to read from a man's perspective about relationships and how to deal with bad experiences. The guidance and support offered is really good. This book deals with relationships, life experiences and spirituality - becoming closer to God.
I would definitely recommend this, you'll go away learning something.

Format: Hardcover
This book makes you get things in perspective and start to analyse your life in all the right areas. I come from a psychological background, and agree that a lot of behaviour is learnt and therefore a lot of our behaviours we learn in childhood. This book also promotes this idea, and emphasises that even subconsciously we can sometimes welcome the wrong people and behaviours into our lives.

I found this to be a brilliant read, especially for Tyrese's first book. I am impressed by how well written it is and how well he conveys his own personal experiences in ways that the reader may identify more with what he is saying. I think every reader is bound to see something that they can identify with, and would therefore recommend to to all!

Format: Hardcover
This is the first book that I have read that looked at the conditions people live in and how to change these standards of living and then keeping them. Tyrese comes from a very hard background which had some similarities to my own. The way that Tyrese talks about the situations in his life and how he consequently dealt with them was insightfully helpful to some of my own life. For those people out there that want to be able to look at things in their life in a different perspective I would highly recommend this book it is helpful, detailed, easy to read through and a great insight to a great man.

As Tyrese, the author said that this is not a book but his life, you can experience his life first. Then, there are so much to learn from every single line you read. It's like Bible you have it with you, you read it again and again, when you need some guidance you just open it. I am grateful to have this book and hopefully more people will buy this in any forms available.
