The Reinhardt company is a family concern with humble beginnings. Thorsten’s father began in a poor German family and, through ambition and fortunate connections, managed to gain a college education in the cutting-edge technology of computers. With this promising beginning he went on to create a greatly successful software company that managed documents and information for financial companies. He paved the way for his son to learn about business and technology from an early age, and eventually the two would go into business together in an effort to change the world.
Reinhardt’s software company failed as Thorsten was coming of age, and a great betrayal by a trusted friend and advisor led the Reinhardt family to the brink of financial ruin. This betrayal would also result in a lifelong feud that would keep Thorsten’s father under the constant threat of a prison sentence which his health prevented him from serving. Though the Reinhardt’s never forgot the circumstances of this first failure, they quickly moved forward to new technological enterprises. Father and son joined together to dream up an advanced plane with a revolutionary engine that would bring technological and economic advancement to every corner of the world.
In order to pursue their dreams, Thorsten and his father would travel around the globe searching for the right partners and circumstances to make their idea a reality. Though they approached each new place with optimism and a drive to succeed, more often than not they met with deceit, dirty dealing, and unfortunate circumstances. Initially, they bankrolled each new attempt from their own family money and property, but their resources rapidly dwindled and their prospects were often grim. Tensions between father and son rose as they came to disagree on many of the issues crucial to moving forward.
One of the most promising opportunities for the Reinhardt dream came in Bolivia, where the government agreed to partner with these passionate entrepreneurs in order to bring wealth and opportunity to their country. Eventually political unrest made the country entirely too dangerous to inhabit, and after facing physical danger on multiple occasions Thorsten and his family were forced to leave their half formed dreams behind and start all over again.
Thorsten risked it all to achieve his dreams, and at times his family lived on the edge of poverty as a result. His father’s health deteriorated under the strain of reaching for the Reinhardt dreams, leaving Thorsten with feelings of guilt, remorse, and loss. But no matter what struggles fate threw at his feet, this gutsy entrepreneur never gave up on his dream to change the world with technology. At every turn he and his family met challenges head on to come out on top.
The Reinhardt story is far from over, and this book is simply a history to bring readers up to date on matters as they currently stand, and provide important lessons gleaned from real experience in the business world of today. The Struggle For A Better Future takes you on the emotional ride of an entrepreneur with a dream and a drive to push forward no matter what with an enormous amount of faith.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite The Struggle for a Better Future by Thorsten U. Reinhardt is a biography of the Reinhardt family and how they are fighting against the odds and trying to create a better future. Their story begins with Thorsten’s father. We learn that he comes from a very poor German family and by some luck and determination, he goes to college and gets a quality education. With that education and determination, he started his own software company which managed the documents and finances of other companies. For some years, things were really good and he started grooming Thorsten to handle the family business in the future. But when a friend betrayed them, they lost it all. However, they did not let go of their determination and hope for a better future. Instead of curling up and crying, they came up with a new plan and tried to see it through. Their plan was to build a modern, advanced plane with a revolutionary engine, but that needed resources and their own meager funds were not enough for a plan so big. They searched for partners, only to be deceived. With his father’s health failing, Thorsten should have backed down. But he didn’t and this is their story of courage and hope in the face of failure and deceit. This is a truly inspirational story and since the Reinhardt family is still trying to make their dream come true, I am happy that there will be another book to tell us what happens next. This is a delightful book of courage, so much courage. I admire these men for being so hopeful, even when they were very poor. I enjoyed reading their story; it brought me to tears and it made me laugh. I loved it.
