Book Review: Do You!
This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“I’ll let you in on a secret, though my publisher probably wont like it: I’m not saying anything in this book that hasn’t already been said before.”
The above quote from Russell Simmons will probably keep a few people from ever picking this book up. And that’s why they say, “If you wanna hide something from people, put it in a book.”
Russell’s book truly does not say anything that is new and out of the blue. But what makes this book great is his detailed explanation, and real-life examples, of how he got ahead and stays there. But this book is not at all about money and how to start business or be a hip-hop mogul, as Russell Simmons is known as. Do You! is more the type of book that teaches the reader to remember to remember the principles of good, prosperous living in the hip-hop community.
