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."

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

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 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.
This book has my head spinning, I want to go out and create and build something.
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.
Not that great. Pretty repetitive and inspirational without real information on how they made their money. Heavy on the Christianity.

“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.” And remember the four things that never return: the spoken word, the speeding arrow, the wasted life, and the neglected opportunity.” 1 likes
