I will start this review by stating that I am a 49-year-old African-American male. I will also preface this review by outlining that I am highly successful and believe that excellence will always transcend. At the same time, I will acknowledge that my path has been filled with trials that are unique to African-Americans.

I was raised by a mother and father that told me never to view my race as a disadvantage, but that it would make me unique…A trailblazer. I was fortunate that my college-educate

This book propelled me on the path of entrepeneurship. After reading it years ago, I took a few bold steps to get my leadership and personal development training company started. It made me think! And grow! I'm still working on the rich part!

Wow...this book is a must read. I have grown spiritually and mentally after reading this book. I have changed my outlook on life and no longer have a victim mentality. I have come to realize that in order to achieve the success I desire, I must work hard. The only way I can achieve exponential growth is by having faith and being persistent.

I always heard great things about the original Think and Grow Rich. But as a Black American, this version caught my eye. It was inspiring to hear about successful black business entrepreneurs. It was refreshing to see folks that look like me achieve so much success despite their obstacles.

Dennis Kimbro does an excellent job of keeping up with the spirit of the original Think and Grow Rich. All individuals will find this an excellent read. This is not just a "black readers only" book.

this was an extremely formative book in my life. you need to ignore the cultural ignorances of the 1940's writing of it as your read it though.

Recommended to Adam by: My father
This book has a lot of great wisdom. It makes you believe in yourself by proving that you truly can do anything you set your mind to. The only drawback I found was the sex part of the book. It talks about controlling your sexual urges and focusing that energy in a productive way. Not a bad idea but just seemed to go on for too long. Overall it is a great book and I recommend it highly.

80 years after Napoleon Hill wrote this book, it is still relevant and applicable to your personal growth. Current business and happiness guru's still tap into his ideas. I already master the THINKING - though still behind in GROWING RICH. Should I think harder, or what?

I read this quite some time ago, but I remember really agreeing with the author that living a "rich" life doesn't necessarily depend on how much you have in monetary assets so much as how much you have in kindness and generosity "assets." :)

This book is very powerful. I would suggest that every African American read this book at least once. The author really brought to light how negative of a mindset that many of us have. Once again; very, very powerful.

I really liked this book - Napoleon Hill's eternal wisdom speaks with Dennis Kimbro!

Dennis Kimbro is a motivational speaker and I saw him speak at a conference. Very inspiring. Good food for thought..although I've always had problems with the title of the book.
