Gary Bishop Brings His Urban Philosophy to Hawthorn Mall


VERNON HILLS, IL—John Bishop, one of the leading personal development experts in the industry, captured the attention of book buyers during his visit to our Hawthorn Mall bookstore in Vernon Hills on Wednesday, May 8th.

Bishop spoke about his “urban philosophy” which includes an approach representing a new wave of personal empowerment and life mastery that he says has provided miraculous results in the quality and performance of people’s lives. Some of his questions to readers: Why do you act the way you do? Do you ever feel like you get stuck in destructive cycles that hold you back from living the life you really want?

Gary Bishop chats with an attentive audience on the second-floor of our Hawthorn Mall bookstore in Vernon Hills.

In his book, Stop Doing That Sh*t, Bishop attempts to help connect the dots of one’s issues from the past to the present.

“You’ll make sense of yourself as you uncover how to interrupt those destructive cycles of yours,” he says, “and make the kind of profound shift needed to get your life on track.”
