Russell Simmons’ new book Do You! 12 Laws to Access the Power in You to Achieve Happiness and Success has landed onto the New York Times’ Bestsellers List.
Do You! currently sits high with a debut at No. 4 on this week’s Hardcover Advice list.
“I am very grateful, humble and excited that so many people are reading and learning from the lessons of my life experiences,” Simmons told AllHipHop.com about the book’s success.
Co-written with journalist Chris Morrow, Do You! outlines 12 steps used by the mogul to achieve personal and professional success.
The 320-page hardcover book, which hit stores Apr. 24, features an introduction by business tycoon Donald Trump.
In addition to the Hardcover Advice top five, Do You! also cracked the New York Times’ Hardcover Business top 10, debuting at No. 10.
Do You! marks Simmons’ second foray into literature.
The rap icon’s first book, Life and Def : Sex, Drugs, Money, and God, chronicled his rise to fame as well as the highs and lows of his experiences as the head of Def Jam Records and his personal transformation from hard working music executive to family man.
