Avel Knight follows the philosophy of business philosopher Jim Rohn: “Unless you change how you are, you will always have what you’ve got.” .
He wants to enjoy the finer things in life because he never had them growing up. So he works harder than his peers to graduate near the top of his class. He enrolls at King University, and he’s flooded with job offers when he graduates as a marketing specialist..
When Avel buys a luxurious home overlooking the city’s skyline, he thinks he has everything he could ever want. As a black man, he’s had to work harder than most to achieve his goals. But something still seems to be missing..
As Avel becomes a man, he learns what is truly important in life—his soul and his family. He must figure out how to march to success, practice what you preach, grow through conflict, and how to truly enjoy the fruits of hard work..
The Truth behind a Lie: The Road to Commitment presents an inspirational self-help guide in story form—one that will help you to focus on the important things in life: your soul and your family.
Jesse's book is a wonderful self-help book that tells the truly inspirational coming of age story of Avel Knight, an African American teen who overcomes poverty, family tragedy, and his own sometimes self-destructive drive to succeed and forget about his roots. In between snippets of Jesse's tale, we get provocative and inspirational advice designed to make us focus on the important things in life: our souls and our families. This work will almost certainly take its place along the works of writers like Joel Osteen. Marc D. Baldwin, PhD www.edit911.com, Inc.
