Kimbro dedicates his life to researching what makes the great, great. In this book, he combines advice from Napoleon Hill’s classic Think and Grow Rich, and tells stories of hardship and triumph through the lens of black Americans.
The contribution minority groups have, and continue to make to America is so often overlooked or exploited. This book makes a refreshing change to the usual narrative and shines a bright spotlight on individuals such as Jesse Jackson, Oprah Winfrey and Spike Lee, whose early life circumstances were built for them not to succeed.
The success stories inspire me. Whenever I’m in need of inspiration or feeling demotivated, I read a few pages from the book. “If they can do it, with all the cards stacked against them, why can’t I?” I say to myself. It really is a blueprint to success. The sort of book you’d want to revisit and take notes on. Or at least I often do!
I’m a firm believer in the power of positive thought, doubled with consistent massive action. This book is packed with messages that inspire and spur me to keep going.
I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking to make a drastic change in their life.
