Legendary music producer LA Reid - the man behind artists such as Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Kanye West, Rihanna, TLC, Outkast, Pink, Justin Bieber, and Usher - changed the music business forever. Now he tells his story, taking fans on an intimate tour of his life. Sing to Me is a fascinating journey from Reid's small-town R&B roots in Cincinnati, Ohio, and his work as a drummer to his fame as a Grammy Award-winning music producer and his gig as a judge on the hit reality show The X Factor.

Amazing book. Loved the whole thing. It had EVERYTHING I could've asked for!

Reid is even more interesting than I ever could've imagined.

Thank you my good sir! This helped a lot!

Oh and by the way, amazing narrator too!

Today's successful careers are not planned out in advance. They develop when people are prepared for opportunities because they have asked themselves the right questions and have rigorously assessed their unique characteristics. This article challenges listeners to take responsibility for managing their futures, both in and out of the office.

I'm currently on a 67 steps program to change my life and there were so many things that I wanted to change at the same time. My mind got overwhelmed and I didn't understand where to start formning my life.

This book helps you out with exactly that.
People keep saying that the book should be shorter, but I disagree.
This is about really implementing the idea to your life. Its one thing to know something and a whole other thing to apply that knowledge.

Few things in life are more satisfying than beating a rival. We love to win and hate to lose, whether it's on the playing field or at the ballot box, in the office or in the classroom. In this bold new look at human behavior, award-winning journalist and Olympian Matthew Syed explores the truth about our competitive nature: why we win, why we don't, and how we really play the game of life.

Very useful information if you want to know about factors that could inhibit your success in general.

We make our minds believe things that aren't true in todays society with all the made up rules that people have about how the world is, what is good and bad, etc.
This book clears up a lot of things.
