How To Get Out of Your Own Way - Book Review


I've been getting amazing reviews on the book and tweets from you the fan and supporters and it has been beyond overwhelming .. But this review right here really shook me up and I had to share it with you.. I was an emotional wreck for a day after I read it.. From the bottom of my heart for those of you who already ordered my book Thank You!! And for those of you who are still iffy!! If you've never made an investment in yourself in your life.. You are only 12 bucks and an overnight package away from doing it..  Enjoy!! 

"Tyrese conveys a profound message in the pages of How To Get Out Of Your Own Way. By not holding back, you learn how to navigate and become aware of your dilemmas in life and unapologetically remove anyone and anything that does not better you. You have no choice but to digest and reflect as Tyrese reveals his truths. He takes you to that uncomfortable place that you pretend does not exists and forces you to demand more for yourself. 

You will be deeply affected by his intelligence, wisdom, honesty and dignity. Each chapter unveils some of his most intimate thoughts and childhood memories; the good, the bad and the ugly. He challenges everyone to understand where you are in life and change for the better. That old saying is true, 'Once you know better...you do better.' And after reading How To Get Out Of Your Own Way, I am doing just that and you will too! You will start living the life you have always deserved." - Whitney McDonald, MTV Radio

  1. Tyrese-

    This is a comment pre-book purchase. I wanted to tell you how Im sitting with my life right now, and how Im hoping your book will help me out(even in the slightest). I am in the dark, and though I am reaching and still walking through it, I feel my sense of direction is non existent. I have hope and faith but what I dont have is those two constantly, meaning each and every second. They falter..I falter. I question myself, and hold myself back on so many levels at times when I dont understand or cannot make sense of situations. Im not looking for your book to "save" me, only God can do that if I let him. But what I am hoping for is that your book will help me make some sense out of life, maybe discover a whole new perspective on how to view it.. just so I can see a bit more clearer, or perhaps maybe, for the first time ever...

    Ill get back soon with a post-book purchased and read comment.

  6. How to get out of your way. Is truly my/a life saver.I'm going to be bold and let this out there. BOLD. That is exactly what you are. I have been following you on twitter for along time.Watching recently I have noticed people getting on you about praying before the book.Well that is exactly why it was a bold move because people assume you use God to make money? You didn't have to write this book.I truly believe you used your closeness with god to Help people because you want others to be able. And that is exactly what you have done. Especially with me.I have been getting out of my own way for along time. Your book as touched and inspired me. I relate to your childhood. And I cried through reading the entire thing not because I felt bad for you but I knew what you were going through not all of it but most. I am from The Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in North Dakota. I struggled through out school because I myself was diagnosed with ADHD/ADD. I fought a lot!!I got kicked out of kindergarten because I fought my teacher!!Nothing I'm proud of but I'm sure you'll understand.I was a BIG class clown but was teased a lot.My father lets just say Abuser,Drug Addict, Alcoholic, Molester.I have been raped and went through hell. But I fought depression through out my whole life and refused to take anything.I can do this I told myself. And well I did it I got pass it.If it wasn't for my strong independent mother and the dear lord. I don't know where I'd be if it wasn't for her and the lords strength and love.But I felt like something was missing and when I first heard about your book. I knew!! I had a feeling that it was my missing link.I felt alone and in the dark for so so long.I grew up with no proper man in my life if I had things would have been so much different. But they weren't. I want to Thank You for writing this book the way you did. Everything about it is very inspirational, motivational,and life changing. I know you said on one of your interview videos that you had no need to write another.BUT.I wouldn't mind seeing another!!I am being Bold writing all this but it is something that my conscience keeps telling me.Write Ajanee' Write it. Your Tweet saying Think of me as a big brother that believes in you.Tough Love you can never take a break from Greatness.Through your words you are truly the Big brother I never had and I'm sure you are and will be to many others as well. Much Love&Respect Ajanee'
    I will no longer let my past hold me back from being the best mother,wife,sister,and daughter that I can be I'm getting out of my own way. (aja.emile@gmail.com)

  9. Tyrese,

    AMAZING! I saw a video of your interview with Steve Harvey on TBN, and I must say, I respect and love you all the more! I've been a fan since your Coke commercial and your days as the rival dancer in Usher's My Way video. I'm a writer myself and my upcoming novel is my way of getting out of MY own way, a catharsis and expunging of old hurts. A lot of what you say has been said before, but coming from you seems to shine with this new ray of light. I am moved, and I'm only on page 50! Thank you, keep being you, and I am honored to become a part of the Love Circle! I've got an author blog here as well, raynettastocks.blogspot.com, and I hope what I write is as inspirational and motivational as the words you've written. I'm writing a blog about your book and encouraging all of my fans to purchase too! Again, thank you! You're incredible.

  10. I have ordered your book for my son, I really hope it will be an eye opener for him. He is 15 but if he dont get out of his own way soon, I am scared that he will be headed down the wrong road, and I dont want that to happen!

  17. I am buying your book today !!!! South Africa, first time EVER I heard of Tyrese Gibson, watched you only last night on Television :) and I felt the presence of GOD when you spoke.

    Now I watched and heard many people speak BUT... BUT ...for some reason I felt you carry the blessings of GOD in you...No one ever needs to believe me on this - But again I say u carry GOD in you...
    My body began to shiver and tears rolled down my eyes , U are for real man!!! there is no FAKE money robbers who ACT !!!! U are the real deal from GOD - A Child Of GOD - I was channel hopping did not even intend to go to TBN Channel and suddenly i felt a feeling on the inside that I got to watch this.... All I can say Tyrese I have been a Christian for many years after last night hearing you I became a Christian :) ,You have saved my life through GOD Almightly. Do not stop !!!until you see GODs Grace welcoming you in HEAVEN.... You have touched my life I am gratefull , thankfull that GOD has given me an example. GOD BLESS !!!

  18. My The Love and Blessing of God be with you. Tyrese always stay truth to God and he will guide your path. I feel your story a lot of it you were talking to me. I know what it feel like when someone try to trash your dreams and spirit. I know what God has for you it is for you, and all the devil's in hell can't stop it from happening. Please pray that one day when God want me to sing for him it will happen. I am only asking for your prayers nothing else my you always be bless. Virginia Pierce- Roanoke Rapids nc
