Since rising out of the New York City streets over 25 years ago, Russell Simmons has helped create such ground breaking ventures as Def Jam Records, Phat Farm and Def Comedy Jam, in the process becoming known the world over as "The CEO of Hip Hop." Russell might have helped introduce hip-hop to the world, but he credits his success to his belief in a strong set of principles-or laws--which he shares for the first time in this book. In 12 straight forward steps, Russell reveals a path towards success that can be followed not only by those looking to duplicate his professional success, but anyone struggling to realize their dreams. 

Indeed, those solely looking for advice on how to build up their bank accounts at the expense of personal integrity should probably look elsewhere. That’s because these laws stem from the belief that all success, be it professional or personal, comes from a connection with your higher self. Using examples from his own experiences and observations, Russell demonstrates how tapping into that connection will allow you to get your mind right, find the motivation to start instead of stall, surround yourself with the right people, appreciate the power of hard work and understand the power of karma. 

But most importantly, this book will demonstrate how it’s impossible to receive any sort of lasting success from the world without giving something of lasting value to the world first. That’s a practice that is reflected in Russell’s own work as a mentor and philanthropist and one that he promotes as being fundamental to empowerment and success on every level. 

Blending business insight, universal spiritual truths and an inspired sense of purpose DO YOU! crosses the lines of age, race and background with wisdom that will lift you up and motivate you to pursue your vision.

    " Took a while to finish, but that could be a good thing. This book challenges you (a young twenty something year old) to think about how we view 'work'. "

    " Nice book on success principles. Russel adds a different perspective. I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/29/2014

    " I think that this book is a great resource for a very specific population. Those young people who can relate to the hip hop culture will find a lot of valuable inspiration for this work. I also found much in this book that was of value but I am definitely not its target audience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Lippert | 1/27/2014

    " WOW!!! This book is amazing and really helped me change my entire attitudes around. Highly, highly recommend this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda Sherman | 1/22/2014

    " This was a great book! Very uplifting and full of great advice. All 12 of the laws are common sense, but easier said then done and as he says in the book "Remember to remember". Russel Simmons is the hip-hop mogul and owner of many companies. Some of his ventures are Rush Philanthropic, Rush Card, Phat Farm, Baby Phat, Global Grind, and many, many more. He walks you through the start of his career and how he got to where he is today by "trying" to follow these rules. He mentions several times in the book that sometimes he catches himself breaking his own laws, but growth is needed everywhere. He often talks about spirituality but he clarifies in the introduction this book is not based on religion or any particular sect of religion. You can use his advice and laws in your personal life and in the business world and as he walks you through each chapter he explains how the particular law applies to him in both his business and personal life. He also makes it very clear that the book is not about. It is not about his full life story, it's not a surefire ways to get rich, it's not about industry or personal life gossip and behind the scenes secrets. The book is simply about being or becoming a better you whether in life, business or both. That being said my personal favorite of the laws is number five: Never Less Than Your Best. He explains how and why this law works and how to incorporate it into everyday use. I highly recommend this book, especially to business students, professionals and anyone looking for a change. The laws are common sense, but often forgotten or ignored. Check it out! "

    " I liked his other book, "Super Rich: A Guide to Having It All" much better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori Grant | 1/19/2014

    " A must-read book on success frameworks in self development for knowledge workers, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs. "

    " All good info but nothing really unique or interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Hosch | 10/25/2013

    " Great book. A little squishy on the spiritual side, but damn what a good book. Russell talks about not only his successes but his failures as well. Russell is similar to a modern-day Ayn Rand, in his philosophies. This is also a very good book for youngsters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 7/23/2013
