High-profile financial entrepreneur Gray, featured in print, magazine, radio, and TV outlets, follows up his first title (Reallionaire), which was essentially his autobiography, with a work explaining his life philosophy and the tools one needs to achieve. Raised by a single parent on Chicago's South Side and the youngest of five children, the author defied the odds and became a millionaire at the age of 14. He then made his second million by age 16, and this work accentuates his personal recipe for success, which includes having the right attitude and being willing to work hard and hustle, and his emphatic rejection of what he perceives as the most pervasive myths many people believe about financial success. After distinguishing the difference between merely having a lot of money and building genuine long-term wealth based on a variety of assets, Gray explains away the typical myths, including the need to be born lucky, to have money to make money, and to know a lot about the stock market or work on the Street. Countering these myths, Gray offers his sobering, pragmatic advice. While this advice will appeal to fans of Stephen Covey, Gray's obviously nonprofessional but passionate style of narration works to connect this inspirational material with its core audience, including inner-city youth struggling to define themselves and overcome their own obstacles to success. Recommended for larger public libraries.
