Brown has come up the hard way: Born into poverty, he was adopted and raised by a single mother and mistakenly labeled "educably mentally retarded" as a youth. With no formal education after high school, he became a disc jockey, then a community activist, and went on to three terms in the Ohio legislature. Now one of America's leading motivational speakers, he delivers his inspirational messages for creating a truly happy, successful life.
Brown, an up-and-coming motivational speaker, a.k.a. The Motivator, here offers his personal growth message in print. Once labeled educationally mentally retarded, he has been a sanitation worker, disk jockey, activist, state legislator, and night club emcee. Through his ``Nine Principles of Life Enrichment,'' he proposes that anyone can succeed by stoking the fires of hunger for a dream. Brown's belief in our responsibility for our own success at times suggests a Pygmalion complex. Some of what Brown says can be found in a slightly different arrangement in Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Successful People ( LJ 3/15/90), Richard Gillett's Change Your Mind, Change Your World ( LJ 7/92), and Gilbert Brim's Ambition ( LJ 2/15/92). Having participated in four PBS specials, Brown may be familiar to many patrons. Public libraries should have this title in their self-help sections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/92.--Scott Johnson, Meridian Community Coll. Lib., Miss.
