    Enthusiastic.

    This work tells the story of a black man who rose to become a top CEO. Author BLAIR S. WALKER, discusses the chronicle of his subject's private life based on dozens of interviews and also consulting many sources and borrowing on an unfinished autobiography Reginald Lewis wrote shortly before his death from brain cancer in order to give a full and accurate account of this intense, goal-oriented man's life. If motivation and inspiration is what you seek, you will find it in various chapters throughout the book. Power packed with valuable business lessons on deal making and negotiations, this book has the ability to cultivate your mind set in many a positive ways. Lewis was a tough- minded narcissistic individual. He was a man set on being an exception to life's ugly stereotypes towards African Americans. Although the book does fall short in not talking about the deaths of two keystone figures in Lewis's life which was his grand pop and grand mom who were considered some of his greatest strength as a boy. Lewis and his two LBO's became a greater success than the famous 'burning bed' blunder by the former First Boston. Overall, you will find this book an entertaining read.

    Great inspiration for young afro-american entreprenuers

    This was one of the first books I read when I became truly interested in entering the world of business. As a young afro-american man, it gave me inspiration in a world where all I saw around me was successful men of every other nationality but mine. It shows us that with hard work and persistance, the ground becomes level, and your success becomes equal with your abilities.

    Inspiring!

    This book has re-defined how I do business in corporate america. Reggie's story showed me how to break through the glass ceilings. This story is one that all young entrepreneurs should read regardless of your race. The hardest thing to believe is that these people actually made all that money!
