Be Inspired! Tyler Perry gives readers a wonder-filled ride as he shares biographical sketches starting with his humble beginnings in New Orleans with his mother Maxine’s assured love and his father Emmitt’s regular wrath. His journey is peppered with his challenges and his triumphs as he offers shards of wisdom through parables, famous quotes and Biblical passages. His book, Higher is Waiting, gently guides others towards finding their purpose in life. Early on, readers can see that Tyler Perry’s determination, perseverance and heart of gold combined to make him a true victor!

I was hoping to read his life story which I'm quite sure is really interesting. Instead I got a small taste of events in his life and an overdose of religion.

Another celebrity trying to tell the average working joe how to make it. I will pass. I had to return this book.

I accepted this book from Penguin Random House for review purposes. I had been looking forward to reading it and the opinions expressed are my own. I rate this book a 4.5. It will not appeal to everyone, but in its niche it is among the top books. Readers who appreciated Chris Gardner 's The Pursuit of Happyness will also enjoy this. It has a touch of Dead Poets Society by N.H. Kleinbaum feeling as well. Higher Is Waiting is written from Perry's personal experiences. The book is divided into 4 main sections: Planting, Nourishing, Branching out and Harvesting. Each brief chapter illustrates a lesson, an experiece from Perry's life, and closes with a recap, a consideration and often a verse. While it has a Christian bent, this book is for anyone who desires more from life, who wants to understand and take control of their life experience. As did each of us, Tyler lived through difficult times. Lessons were presented and perhaps not understood until years later. He was blessed with strong female role models who had exceptionally strong beliefs of faith. While now his life may be considered a success, it would not be, (the same as for each reader,) until he took responsibility. The lessons he learned, illustrates and shares, help the reader to look back and find their own lessons. The chapter on Protecting Your Dreams resonated with me, as did the encouraging words to never quit, to continue moving forward. Find ways to live your dream even if on a smaller scale. I also appreciated the chapter on Leaving The Nest, paying attention to the signs and signals about time for change. We have a choice about how we view what is and what has happened in our lives.
