To Win We Must Combat Our Biggest Enemy. Ourselves.

“One of the things that i’ve noticed about a lot of people is they let the hardships in their lives, failures, to dust themselves off and try again.” - Everette Taylor


Book of The Week - Ego Is The Enemy

This week’s book of the week is a book in our collection, Ego is the Enemy.

It’s a book about fighting the one enemy we all collectively share. Ourselves.

To give you a taste of what it’s all about I’ve made some audio notes for it I think you would enjoy.

It’s about 3 minutes, (same length as Roddy Rich - High Fashion. Ha.) and packed full of highlights from the book.

Check it out - https://soundcloud.com/black-men-book-club/ego-is-the-enemy/s-T95l2

If you enjoy it, I highly recommend getting the full book here.
