Needless to say I will listen to this repeatedly. Each chapter stands alone. Whether you're looking for a total life change or just a pick me up you will find much to keep you engaged and inspired. So many have walked the path before us and we should take heart, we are well equipped. Learn the principles and put them to use, it's not by chance that we've come this way.
"Not Feeling the Connection"
This book has great info. I just felt that this book was written for non blacks to understand black people. I think it was too general and didn't touch on why we think the way we think and how to overcome that. And throwing in the few black people that became successful, although idyllic, doesn't really compare to the masses that have not and remain in a stupor. I feel almost no connection to a book that is marketed to people like me. I even felt slightly offended.
I will continue to listen repeatedly but I don't think my opinion will change much.
Stop everything you are doing right now and listen to this book till the end. It is that good and important!
"Wooow! Mind blowing information"
enough said. I have read few books with a more directed and timeless poignant message
I've read as well as listened to the audiobook to the original Think and Grow Rich. Wasn't sure what to expect from this version but this audiobook give great examples of triumph over hardship than the original version. As we all can agree the African American experience here in America hasn't been an easy one. But, regardless of your race or ethnicity you can benefit from the knowledge gained from this audiobook!

"A Must-Have for Black Americans!"
So much wisdom regarding life and success... Truly astonishing work! Have no fear of regret. This is a wonderful resource, especially for the young black person, for successfully navigating the inevitable trials and tribulations of life, coupled with an example-based guide for dealing with the injustices of racism and prejudice in a productive manner. With regard to the religious language, I would advise taking certain passages with a grain of salt. Still, as a young black man, I gained great insight about my own mind, the culture in which we live, and the actions necessary to achieve one's personal definition of success. I highly recommend it.
