    Your level of success depends on your level of determination

    Although this isn't the first hood to success story, this one is well needed at a time when questions are being leveled at the churches integrity as well as the expected failure of the Black-American male. Chaplain Blacks faith, determination, and personal integrity has encouraged me and I'm expecting this book will be used to encourage many of our youth. You will also learn from these pages that Bill Cosby is absolutely right, studying is the key to success and parents play a great importance in a childs future. Thank you for Mrs. Pearline Black.

    Absolutely amazing

    This is an incredible story of overcoming obstacles, and of one man's personal faith which enables him to be such a respected presence on Capitol Hill. US Senate Chaplain Barry Black shares the secret of his success and what it means to be a true leader. I highly recommend this book!!!
