Not a must read, but maybe useful for some.

It's surprising that so many people would rate this book five stars and state that it's a must read. It's actually one of those books that I have grown to try to avoid.
After reading many books on business and developing wealth, I've learned to weed out the books that talk about absolutely nothing. If you read think and grow rich or any of the other books that focus on the the law of attraction and a kind of religious aspect to becoming wealthy you don't really need to read this book. It goes over similar concepts and doesn't necessarily give any real insight on how to develop wealth. The assumption is that wealth would come to you if you believe in god and are persistent.
If you read his earlier book, Think and grow rich: The black choice, don't waste time with this book. It's basically the same book with new stories. The author even admits that he has not been able to develop wealth implementing the practices that he preached in his books.
If you are simply looking for inspiration or motivation from an African American context then you should check out this book. But if you're an actual business person looking for business knowledge or if you're not into religion, you probably wont enjoy this book.
