Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

"The secret to the fountain of youth is to think youthful thoughts," said Josephine Baker. "Don't ask for anyone's advice unless you are prepared to use it," according to Sammy Davis, Jr. "Lost time is never found again," posited Thelonious Monk. Lists make best-sellerdom. As do quotes, witticisms, meditations, and thoughts to ponder. Kimbro, of Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice, has picked 359 other wise words from the famous and near-famous and expounded upon them, with each entry allotted a page or less. These explications are in the form of stories, orations, personal examples, and the like--all to inspire, teach, and dream. Barbara Jacobs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

A rich compendium of wisdom from such distinguished and celebrated African Americans as Malcolm X, Bill Cosby, Morgan Freeman, Alice Walker and others, designed to help you focus on the thoughts, attitudes, and deeds that will lead to the achievement of your true goals. Each lesson will last a lifetime!

Format: Paperback
This book is filled with witticism, fables and motivational content. It makes you accountable for your actions and or reactions to living your life. Your life starts with YOU, you taking responsibility, you living from your heart desire, and you sharing what you learn with others. The points are made quickly and in a profound way. It is a book not just for African Americans, but for everyone. It's a must have, I have had it for over 3 years and still quote from it frequently.

I tend to read this book in the mornings after I read my Bible and religious material and it can give a person such a lift in the mornings. I even saw a lady at school with a book that really had seen its best days and I know that the book had likewise sentiments for her. Get a copy today and be motivated

Books like 'Daily Motivations For African American Success' are what we, as a people, need to keep us on target and constantly inspired.

Clearly Dennis Kimbro is commited to the furtherance of our people, I suspect that some of his 'Motivations' are, or will, be found at OurEmpowerment.com as one of their 'Good Morning Motivational Message(s)'.

Amazon did it right to place Kimbro in the company of Brown, Fraser, and Graves. Those gentlemen are not just motivators, but living role models whose shoes we are invited to walk in.

This book is a lot like Act's of faith. Daily motivatios for african american success is a very inspiring book. It's a good companion to Dennis Kimbro's Think and grow rich which also is very inspiring. I've had this book for over three years and still read it from day to day. It's daily stories, lessons, motivations and sayings were not only and inspiration but were informative as well.

I have had this book for two years and just realized I never reviewed it...
In those two years I have grown through using the motivations and making these motivations speak to me through my own words.
In fact, this book is so great it has motivated me to pen my writings of motivations through my own words.
Any African American should be inspired to grow and reach the highest highs...
But this book is not just for African Americans it can inspire anyone who is stuck in a rut or needs a new deeper direction.
Thanks Dennis .....

I have purchased this title twice as a gift and been thanked profusely. If you have a friend or relative who appreciates positive messages, could use daily motivation, needs help to focus on inspirational thoughts, or who works in a stressful job, this is an excellent gift for African-Americans and people of any race or gender.
