Rapper and fitness promoter Ibomu (RBG Fit Club) gives back by showcasing the knowledge and understanding he’s reached during the last few decades that’s helped him achieve numerous personal and professional goals. While not groundbreaking, his work presents a structure that many readers can relate to and gain inspiration from. Some of the anecdotes and examples may seem a little too specific to the average reader, but the author keeps the narrative flowing and engaging. Like most celebrity lifestyle books, some of the advice is not as attainable for most, but the journey and the name-dropping make it entertaining. Even readers not as familiar with his circle will find common ground. His enthusiasm for all his interests is contagious, and he covers an astonishing number of topics, from dealing with gout to martial arts to African mythology to running a marathon. It all blends to show how his five principles can bring balance and stability to different factors of life.
VERDICT A welcome addition to self-help, fitness, and healthy living sections.
