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.
Brad Hooper
Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and "Law of Success", in their many various versions, have sold millions of copies. Some time after his death in 1970, it was reported that Hill had left an unfinished manuscript targeting black America with his message of self-confidence and affirmative outlook. Kimbro, a black writer and lecturer for the Napoleon Hill Foundation, adapted and updated Hill's manuscript, which argues that such barriers as racism, discrimination, and lack of opportunity should not be self-defeating obstacles.

Meet the Author

Napoleon Hill (1883-1970) was born in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age 13 as a "mountain reporter" for small town newspapers and went on to become America's most beloved motivational author. His classic work, Think and Grow Rich, continues to inspire millions to believe and achieve and is a cornerstone of the modern self-actualization movement. Before passing, Hill established the Foundation as a nonprofit educational institution whose mission is to perpetuate his philosophy of leadership, self-motivation, and individual achievement.
