And the Come On People Book Giveaway winners are...

A big THANK YOU goes out to all who entered our first giveaway to win the book Come on People, On the Path from Victims to Victors.

Written by Bill Cosby and Dr. Alvin Poussaint, the duo appeared on the Oprah show last October promoting their message of personal responsibility: "Our whole emphasis [is] on moving people out of victimhood and [getting them to do] the kinds of things they need to do to achieve and be successful. And not making excuses for themselves, no matter what the situation is", said Alvin Pouissant.

Initially, we were going to give away ten books, but the publishing company, Thomas Nelson, graciously provided more books! Here are the 20 winners:

Tammy M., Tracy, CA
Kathleen D., Mentor, OH
