I really enjoyed reading this book. Kimbro gives concrete examples from African-American millionaires on how they acquired wealth. I constantly found myself writing down some very insightful gems that I hope will change the way I handle money on a daily basis. One quote in particular really consumed my thoughts: "The poor keep score by cars and clothes. The middle class keep score by degrees and titles. But the wealthy keep score by their bank accounts."

Great book for inspiration regarding entrepreneurs. What I realized whether the person grew up as working poor, middle class, or corporate executive they all had struggles launching their business. Failure and success does not discriminate it's all about hard work.

I enjoyed the book. It had many background stories of black millionaires. I was looking for technical secrets to make a million, but I got a biography of rich black people. That is cool tho. I am going on Wikipedia and researching the people he interviewed. I am going to apply the knowledge I learned from this book as a road map to my own personal riches. Good book kimbro! Also very well written

Overall this was a pretty good read. Kimbro used some amazing quotes from prominent African Americans that will stick with me. The book definitely made me want to work for myself and build my own wealth. It also reinforced some good practices to saving money and building wealth. I was looking for more of a specific guide but I got the big picture.

I was very impressed with the depth of this book. Mr. Kimbro did an excellent job of providing
value and inspiring information on every day people who succeed beyond all the odds. Letting his audience know that if you work hard, persevere, are dedicated, are passionate and have a well thought out vision you can achieve anything.

A different perspective

I chose this rating because it's not a step by step what to do book. It gives you a different perspective on the importance of wealth, introduces you to people you do not know and reintroduce those you already know in the context of obtaining wealth. Shock you with facts and stats you may not have realized, and give you the inspiration that you need to be among the financial elite. I would recommend this to those who want to really refocus on their financial situation.

Dennis Kimbro continues to tell the story about building African-American wealth and professional success. Between the anecdotes and his analysis of extensive data, Dr. Kimbro illustrates that financial success has a process that can be learned and applied. I shall continue to recommend his works, and especially The Wealth Choice, to students and professionals seeking insight and inspiration to point toward material success.

Great read...Inspirational by all means. Interesting comparisons of historical black business owners to today's top entrepreneurs. Where they started and how they built their empires. A wide variety of quotes, business genres and references to live by. Totally enjoyed and will continue to read all of Napoleon Hills publications.
Abraham Williamson

Dr. Kimbro knows exactly who his audience is and provides excellent use of narratives to outline 7 Laws of Wealth. His inside look at Black Financial Elite is illuminating and convicting

This is a great read. I've learned more from the pages (financially) than I have in the past 30 years of life.

Very inspirational and great examples of triumph over circumstance. If you have goals outside of your current situation, this is a great read to spark ideas and get you going.

Not that great. Pretty repetitive and inspirational without real information on how they made their money. Heavy on the Christianity.
