Hill Harper books make me feel as if, he sitting next to you, with a bottle of wine-and teaching you life lessons. This book is good foor all ages, but I would highly recommend this for a Junior or Senior high school student preparing for college, or the workforce. It's will help guide and mold them into the right way of thinking. We need more of us young people to have a "Weath Cure", it starts with home and this book. Great job Hill.
I'm 23 years old, as many other 23 years old's I'm looking for answers on how to achieve financial security for my future. I give Mr.Harper's book a very solid 4 stars. I have definitely learned many valuable lessons in this book.
Each chapter, each story, encounter, and personal information throughout the book is so simple and easy to relate to without any hesitation. Financial responsibility is brought to the forefront to remind all readers that it's not just about getting ahead if life and it's not always about you! Each chapter allows the reader to find some personal relationship about what has been written down. Upon completion of reading this book the reader will be able to compare and contrast their own personal life experiences with those of Hill's and will be able to promise themselves to try to improve at least one part of their current life style to make it just a bit more worthy, to be able to know and live the real world of what The Wealth Cure.
Practical, honest concepts about money and true wealth in life.
I had no real picture or understanding of this very powerful and determined black male. Thank you for taking the time to allow others into your life. I am sure that you will continue to be blessed for sharing your life lessons.
Hill never disappoints! He put's life in perspective and offers great advice to come out of anything that you might be going through. The Board of Directors & Mastermind Circle is genius!
