Chicago-native Common, who is the author of the New York Times bestseller, One Day It’ll All Make Sense, is back with his second book, Let Love Have The Last Word.
The book is a memoir that looks at how love and mindfulness can build communities and allow us to take better control of our lives through actions and words.
Common believes that the phrase “let love have the last word” is not just a declaration; it is a statement of purpose, a daily promise. Love is the most powerful force on the planet and ultimately, the way you love determines who you are and how you experience life.
Touching on God, self-love, partners, children, family, and community, Common explores the core tenets of love to help others understand what it means to receive and, most important, to give love. He moves from the personal—writing about his daughter, to whom he wants to be a better father—to the universal, where he observes that our society has become fractured under issues of race and politics. He knows there’s no quick remedy for all of the hurt in the world, but love—for yourself and for others—is where the healing begins.
Courageous, insightful, brave, and characteristically authentic, Let Love Have the Last Word shares Common’s own unique and personal stories of the people and experiences that have led to a greater understanding of love and all it has to offer. It is a powerful call to action for a new generation of open hearts and minds, one that is sure to resonate for years to come.
Here’s some words from Common about the new release:
“No one has it all figured out; I certainly do not. This memoir is intended to share my process of digging deeper, making mistakes, trying again, and continuing to trust God that we all have an opportunity to live in freedom, love, and positivity when we do he work on self. Thank you for taking this journey with me. I hope, through my story, you also find tools and encouragement to apply love, to overcome all.”
Let Love Have The Last Word is now available via all major stores where books are sold (including Amazon.
