Brazos welcomes Reggie Gray in-store on Thursday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m.

In A Win Won Situation, Reggie Gray embarks on a profound exploration of personal development, interweaving his life experiences with insightful lessons on building successful and synergistic relationships. This thought-provoking book serves not just as a memoir but as a powerful guide for those seeking to enhance the quality of their professional and personal connections.

WIN WON comes from what Reggie puts into practice in his business and personal relationships. WHAT I NEED – WHAT OTHERS NEED

Reggie, a seasoned Intercontinental Chamber of Commerce president, distills his life into three distinct phases: learning and self-shaping, life-shaping and experiencing, and finally, legacy building and enjoying the fruits of earlier years. He candidly shares his journey, marked by a deeply religious upbringing and a diverse array of life experiences, acknowledging his missteps and triumphs with equal honesty.

Through engaging chapters filled with personal accounts deeply woven with important life lessons, Reggie imparts wisdom gained from his unique blend of experiences. He challenges the reader to rethink conventional notions of success and relationship building, offering a fresh perspective on how to lead a more fulfilling life. His stories are more than mere anecdotes; they are a testament to the power of faith, forgiveness, and the relentless pursuit of dreams.

This book is not just another motivational read. It is a call to action, inviting readers to scrutinize the motives behind the self-help industry and to seek authenticity in their personal growth journeys. Reggie's approach is grounded in giving back and sharing wisdom accrued over decades rather than capitalizing on others' aspirations.

A Win Won Situation is ideal for anyone at a crossroads looking to navigate the complexities of personal and professional relationships with integrity and purpose. It's a guide for those who seek to live a meaningful last third of their life, leaving behind a legacy of collaboration, success, and genuine connection.
