3.5 stars... Overall, this was a fascinating story about the first black female millionaire. It is awe-inspiring to see how Sarah Breedlove started with absolutely nothing as the daughter of former slaves and became not only incredibly wealthy, but an inspiration to hundreds of thousands of people. The book was well-written, but I had to knock it down half a star for stretches in the book that plodded on without making much impact to the story. These parts of the book made it difficult to finish. I was also disappointed to read in the afterword just how much had been imagined by the author, particularly the character of Lottie. I think Sarah's story is quite fascinating, and I would love to read more biographical information about her life.
