2022 Juno Award nominee Kirk Diamond loved reading Wise Mind of H.I.M by Emperor Haile Selassie I
'I don't travel without it'
The annual Juno Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in Canadian music. Hosted by Canadian actor Simu Liu, the 2022 Juno Awards will air live from Toronto on May 15, 2022 on CBC-TV, CBC Gem, CBC Radio One, CBC Music and CBC Listen.
CBC Books asked Juno nominees to share their favourite books. Kirk Diamond is a Brampton, Ont.-based reggae artist who is nominated in the 2022 Reggae recording of the year category for Too Ruff.
Diamond recommended the book Wise Mind of H.I.M by Emperor Haile Selassie I.
"The Wise Mind has had the most impact on my life by inspiring me to want to be a better person. I don't travel without it and I believe most people who have read it would say the same.
"I recommend this book to be added to every library because, for such a small book to be so powerful, I truly believe this book is a gift to humanity."
