Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Reverend Jesse Jackson and his congressman son form the most powerful one-two punch for human rights. In It's About the Money! they take that fight from the police jails and picket lines to Wall Street and the wallet. In an era when many Americans think that playing the lottery is a surer bet than investing in the stock market, the Jacksons demystify the often confusing world of economics and empower the average citizen to achieve a more secure financial future. With information on money management, debt elimination, home mortgages, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, the Jacksons provide the reader with the factual armor to guard against monetary uncertainties of the future. "Living in capitalism without understanding the role of money is like a fish that doesn't know how to navigate water," they write. "In our modern economy, capital is the equivalent of water to fields. With it comes the possibility of growth, without it little can survive." --Eugene Holley Jr.

From Library Journal

Rev. Jackson (founder, Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's Wall Street Project) and his Illinois congressman son join forces to present the basics of personal finance, along with an inspiring message of empowerment.

I seem to have missed the section outlining how to steal campaign contributions to spend on fur coats, elk heads, and Bruce Lee memorabilia. Is my copy missing this important chapter?

Format: Paperback
This was a great read by the Reverand, and his son, Jesse Jr. It's all about hard work, discipline, and striving for the American dream. As I've often said, "It's easy to grin when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat. But the man worth his while, is the man that can smile, when his pants are too tight in the seat."

If you follow their foolproof (almost) plan, you too can live the high life. Read this book and maybe you too can someday own a boat like mine - The Flying Wasp.

I had to give this Pulitzer Prize non-winning book 4 stars, only because it failed to include a chapter on how not to get caught. Other than missing info about how to avoid the Feds from breaking down your door to steal the stuff you previously stole, it's a great read.

The Jackson Two outline a great way to get everything you want in life! Here's a short Q&A!

Q: "How can I, a seemingly normal person, get a rhinestone Rolls Royce and driving gloves made of unicorn leather like Jesse Jr?"
A: It's in the book!

Q: What if I'm not able to blackmail major donors into giving me funds to buy a watch that will tell time even in Narnia?"
A: It's in the book!

Q: Do I have to do illegal things to get the money?
A: It's in the book! And yes!

Q: Will the media judge me harshly?
A: It's in the book! If you're Jesse Jr? No. If you're just a commoner? Yes.

Q: Where did Jesse Jr. buy that Franco Harris beard on the cover?
A: The best beards in the country are made by the Kelly Preston Beard Co. of Los Angeles.

Format: Hardcover
Rev. JJ and his son write a book about capitalism and how people can suceed in America. How does one of the U.S's biggest liberals going to tell people how to make money in America. The part where he Rev JJ says that Americans are better off quiting thier jobs and living off welfare really took me back. Rev JJ promotes lazyness and corruption in America. HE SHOULD OF WRITEN A BOOK CALLED, REV. JJ'S TEN STEPS TO EXTORTION. " You to can have the power to rip people off."

Format: Hardcover
It's About The MONEY is inspirational, easy to read, and is content-rich. Whether you are a novice, aspiring or experienced investor, this book can take you to the next level. In over twenty years of bringing investment information to the African American community, I am humbled by the job Rev. Jackson has done. It's About The MONEY is a "must have" for those planning to succeed in the 21st century.
