Overview

Napoleon Hill's astonishing best-seller Think And Grow Rich formulated the principles of personal achievement, financial independence, and spiritual riches for more than ten million Americans. When he died, he left behind a partial manuscript tailoring his winning program for a black audience. The Napoleon Hill Foundation chose Dennis Kimbro to complete it.

Dr. Kimbro acknowledges the unique and enormous problems black Americans face, but he finds they are not insurmountable. He looks at the lives of successful black Americans (including Spike Lee, Oprah Winfrey, Thurgood Marshall, Florence Joyner, Frederick Douglass, Ron Leflore, Alex Haley), distills the secrets of their success, and combines that information with his own vast knowledge. The result is a powerful and inspiring recording that will give listeners the tools they need to make their own dreams come true.

This success guide for black Americans--based on the principles of wealth that Napoleon Hill formulated in his bestseller Think and Grow Rich--distills the secrets of success of many black Americans, from George Washington Carver to Bill Cosby, from Oprah Winfrey to Jesse Jackson.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kimbro has tailored this deft rewriting of Napoleon Hill's ever-popular classic Think and Grow Rich (1937) to a black audience. Addressing issues like racism and poverty that can affect the achievement of black Americans, he offers a quick tour through black history, highlighting the stories of successful contemporary African Americans like Oprah Winfrey and publisher John Johnson. It works on the same level that the original did and should generate demand among African American patrons. An essential purchase for most institutional libraries, where all self-help books are in high demand.-- Anita L. Cole, Miami-Dade P.L. System, Fla.
