In his second book for adults, the perennial New York Times bestselling author helps readers discover how to put money in its place and use wealth-building as a tool for joy and fulfillment.

Hill Harper is uniquely poised to guide readers through tough times and offers bestselling advice for reaping the rewards of a truly happy life. With The Wealth Cure, he does more than that: He presents a revolutionary new definition of wealth; motivating readers to not only build financial security but to achieve wealth in every aspect of their lives. 

Applying a parable approach, Harper instills practical nuts-and-bolts explanations for laying a sound financial foundation and also focuses on how to recognize the worth of your relationships and increase the value of your interactions with the people in your life.

Drawing on personal recollections and true stories from family and friends, Harper has created an inspiring guide. Readers will begin to see money as energy and a freedom for following their passions. Far from a get-rich-quick primer, The Wealth Cure brims with inspired wisdom for building a lasting bounty from the experiences, loved ones, and achievements that really matter.

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.

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.
