Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story by Wyclef Jean with Anthony Bozza

Published

on

Wyclef Jean has made the news recently. Not all good, some charges of his fiduciary improprieties within his foundation and others as his failed Presidential bid for Haiti. He is best known as a singer and musician when he first made it big in the group Fugees.

In his memoir, Purpose, Wyclef Jean sets the story straight. The book grabs you as he described finding out about the earthquake in Haiti.  How he jets down there before the sunrise the next very day and puts all his energy to assist his fellow countryman.  A very riveting description of the stench of death and total destruction that caused days of mayhem after the worse earthquake in that small nation’s history and how people struggled to cope.

In this life story, Jean has experienced a lot in his young forty two years; he has had some high successes and some low failures. What is most interesting about this book is that is humanizes this superstar and you discover his passion to help others and his commitment to making the world a better place.

Wyclef Jean is a young brother whose star will continue to rise as he lives a truly purpose filled life.

Dr. Mike’s “The Fallacy of the Calorie”

Dr. Mike (Michael S. Fenster, MD) has a sense of humor in dispersing his dietary and nutritional advice in The Fallacy of the Calorie, but what’s also funny is the fact that this cardiologist is dishing out all this information while criticizing supposed self-proclaimed food experts.

Take this passage, for example: “These days it seems as if everybody has an opinion about food and health. People watch Dr. Oz, tune in to the Food Network, or read some anecdotal diatribe on the Internet and all of a sudden they’re full of expert opinions and analysis.”

Dr. Mike mentions only Dr. Oz by name. He then goes on to allude to a bunch of straw men who give consumers lots of conflicting food guidance before launching into his own enterprising book of culinary realness. Dr. Mike is in your face and sounds like a go-getter, I guess. He says if I’m happy with the food I eat and my state of wellness, health, verdure, heartiness is a-okay, then this is not the book for me. PUT THIS BOOK DOWN. If only!
