Editorial Reviews

Review

 Praise for Letters to an Incarcerated Brother

“A must-read for all parents to share with their sons (and daughters).”
–Essence Magazine
 
"A clear, soul-stirring story that compels you (the reader) to take action and help change America for the better."
–IamEntertainmentMagazine.com
 
 
"Sage, dignified adjuration for the imprisoned. . . . An inspiring jail companion guidebook brimming with straight-talking tough love."
–Kirkus Reviews
 
 

Select Praise for The Wealth Cure:

“This is a different kind of financial book, one that not only urges us to look at how we use our money but also at how we define wealth. It's as much about personal philosophy as about advice on building a solid financial future.”
USA Today

The Wealth Cure could fit comfortably in the self-help or personal finance aisle, melding together life strategies, wisdom from family and strangers he meets on a cross-country train ride, and nuts-and-bolts budgeting advice. It's a guide that doesn't promise to get you rich quick, but to quickly help your life get richer.”
–AOL Daily Finance

“Too many of us think we don't have the ability to better identify how to spend our money, but in Hill Harper's latest book he gives advice on simple ways to save more and admits some of his own financial and personal challenges.”
–Chicagotribune.com

Select Praise for The Conversation:

“Hill Harper trades solving crimes on-screen for a new mission: fixing relationship drama.”
Essence

“Hill's work presents a light, insightful, and accessible user's manual for African American men and women to better understand that which keeps us apart (and hopefully what can bring us closer together).”
–wearerespectablenegroes.blogspot.com

Select Praise for Letters to a Young Sister:

“When Hill told me about Letters to a Young Sister, my first thought was how badly I could have used a book like this growing up.” – Gabrielle Union

“This book would make a wonderful gift for any teen looking to find her place in life.”
Star Tribune

"Get it, read it, and share it."
–Detroit Free Press

"Hill, speaking like an older brother, lays out his vision to young women who are confronting rough issues on how to become the architect of their own lives."
Ebony

"Hill Harper is right. Now is our time (both sisters and brothers, young and old) to uplift ourselves."
–BlackVoices.com

“In his straight-talking style, Hill helps his young sister build self-confidence, self-reliance, self-respect, and encourages her on her journeys towards becoming a strong and successful woman.”
Concrete Loop

Select Praise for Letters to a Young Brother:

“Harper’s message is a solo soaring above the choir...”
The LA Times

“In clear, accessible language, Harper encourages his youthful readers to maintain productive values and never give up hope. . . . With frank, loving advice about relationships, careers, sex, education, spirituality and money, Harper helps young readers take that first step toward fruitful change.”
The Washington Post

“In a direct and often colloquial tone...the letters stress the importance of having options and working smart, not just hard.”
The New York Times

“An inspirational guidebook for young men...he tackles real life issues that young men encounter today.”
The Charlotte Post

“...inspiration to young men clamoring for advice and encouragement at a time when popular culture offers little positive direction... Although aimed at young black men, this book, with its contemporary language and approach, should have appeal for youth of both sexes and all races.”
Booklist

I really like the book. It could help many brothers in our prison. I wish more people would reach out to our brother, sons, and friends in prison. People tend to have an out of sight out of mind to people who are in jail and forget about them. Hill is a very nice and passionate person I had to chance to see him in person. I believe if more people would get this book to people in prison we wouldn't have as many people returning to prison.

Why would publisher put this out only in hard-copy when prisoners are not allowed to have hard-cover books? Incarcerated will have to wait until it comes out in paperback.

I don't have the words to express my appreciation for what Hill Harper does in this book. Not only can it be a lifeline for a person who is incarcerated, but it can provide guidance to any young person who is looking for order and meaning in his life.
