Lets talk about #memoirs
📚 ➡️ those of you who have been following me since day 1 know I don't usually #review
anything but #romance
, but I make it a habit of at least reading ONE memoir a year 😩. 2018 was #BusyPhillips
, 2019 is @steveaoki
with his brand new #BlueTheColorOfNoise
. [𝗕𝗧𝗪, 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗦𝗟𝗜𝗠 𝘁𝗼 𝗡𝗢𝗡𝗘 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗜 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗥 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗯𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗲𝗱 𝗯𝘆 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝘃𝗲 😩, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗦𝗢 𝗚𝗢𝗢𝗗 𝗜 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗮 𝗽𝗮𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗽𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗷𝗲𝘄𝗲𝗹 𝘁𝗼 𝗸𝗲𝗲𝗽 𝗶𝗻 𝗺𝘆 𝗙𝗔𝗩𝗘-𝗕𝗢𝗢𝗞𝗦-𝗧𝗢-𝗥𝗘-𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗 𝘀𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗳🤓]. I'm not only impressed, I legit listened to this book in RECORD TIME. Kudos to both Steve and Greg Chun for the FANTASTIC #audio
narration as well. 🎧
is one of only two people on #IG
that I absolutely LOVE checking on a constant basis [borderline stalking 🤣]. He (or whoever manages his IG profile) makes IG FUN. He shows people Steve the DJ but also the REAL Steve; and THAT precisely is the scope of this book: 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗟 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝘃𝗲 𝗔𝗼𝗸𝗶, not the one people THINK they know. Not even the one pictured in his #Netflix
. Nope. This is a more personal, more intimate view of the man who, in spite of being the son of the legendary #RockyAoki
, had to make his own path with no support of his late father: 100% #SelfMade
. He describes in a very poignant yet emotional way the struggles he had to go thru, and the hard work he learned from his own father to become the global success he is nowadays. .
If you want to know what I mean, READ IT. I gave it 4 1/2 ⭐️'s cause it DESERVES IT, and it cannot go unoticed how straighforward he was with everything he wrote: 𝗜𝘁𝘀 𝗵𝗶𝗺𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳, 𝗿𝗮𝘄, 𝗻𝗼 𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱𝘀 𝗯𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗮𝗯𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽𝘀 𝗵𝗶𝗺 𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗮𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀, 𝗜'𝗺 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝘀 𝗵𝗶𝗺 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗺𝗮𝗻. .
