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 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-educated father forced me to read books on the mind, on faith, and on success. When I became a teenager, I sought these books out of my own doing. I know they are the foundation and a powerful reason for why I am where I am today.

I also understand that not everyone (no matter the race!) gets the advantages I had as a Black child growing up in the 60s to a proud but struggling lower middle-class family. I am even more aware of how fortunate I am to have been part of a family that taught me how to fight - through excellence.

All of that said, I understand the historical need to "segregate" the success message. As a sales trainer, and author, I teach a lesson called The Message and The Messenger - it is not a lesson on race but a lesson on building rapport and chemistry (regardless of the clients background) - the foundation of sales.

I applaud Napoleon Hill for trying to address the specific needs of an audience with a specific messenger...and Dennis Kimbro was a good choice.

Few people know that Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) had also begun a transcript of a message to Black America back in the 70s. That mantle was then picked up by this author Dennis Kimbro with the book "Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice". This concept was done again by Anthony Robbins & Joseph McClendon III in "Unlimited Power: A Black Choice". Both works are essentially a redo of the original works with a specific audience in mind, and I believe well intended.

Even now with a two-term Black president (more specifically bi-racial) we still see great disparity, but it is no longer simply defined by race but other components of socio-economics.

As an author of success books, books on sales and other works on achievement, I see myself today as just that - an author. I want those works to affect and impact the world, regardless of race color creed or national origin. Pollyanna perhaps, but I can only control my intent.

Soapbox aside, this book is powerful not because of who it was written for but because of who wrote it. I believe that the creator gave us all what we need, and in spite of what others may think, or do, we can express that gift if we engage the principles outlined in both of these works.

Not to be controversial, I would recommend this book to anyone... ...more

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 is an amazing book that straddles the line between personal development and history of successful black people. It is safe to say that this gem of an inspirational book needs to be updated to appeal more to millennials. In my opinion, anyone of any age can apply these life-changing principles for success. However, these principles will inspire many younger African Americans to make the right decisions that should positively affect their lives.

I saw a review entitled..an inspiring success guide..seems to be an accurate description. An awesome book on the keys to success. I felt completely drawn to the contents of the book. It all starts with self belief, that leads to discipline..without both of these you cannot attain your goals. A real guide to mastery.
Key ideas:

1- Like physical effort, thought control is entirely a matter of intelligent practice.
2 - You sing not because you are happy. You are happy because you sing.

Loved this book! Dennis Kimbro did a fantastic in expounding upon the principles found in Think and Grow Rich, but catering it to Black people and people of color. The greatest lesson I gained from this reading is how powerful our minds are, and thus it is imperative that we become obsessed with success. Kimbro is now one of my favorite authors, and I will always have one of his works in constant rotation. Thanks Kimbro!

After reading the original, this one catered to the Black livelihood was a nice add on. Its definitely a book I will have to keep returning to, as with the original. A lot of moving and inspiring stories held within it. A lot to digest and take in but all the principles in it are sound and if applied as told and the book, it will change your life.

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.

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.
