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

Format: Hardcover
i really dug where he went with this book and how he broke the lingo down on the inside and how he responded. i happen to walk by this book recently and had to check it out and really enjoyed it, though its a very serious read and journey. one of those books that i would recommend.

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.

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.

My son has been in a Texas prising for about 11 years and until he read this book... I never heard anything positive from him in regards to taking responsibility for his actions and getting himself in a position to be able to move forward with his life.... THIS BOOK HAS TRULY WORKED WONDERS ON HIM 👍👍👍

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.

Every young person, and old, should read this book, incarcerated or not! It motivates, inspires, and explains how to live and plan one's life. There is something for everyone. I was blown away by Hill. He puts his thought, advice, enthusiasm, and honesty up front and in an understandable, succinct style. This book should be given out in schools and made part of a program for youth nationwide.

In Letters to an Incarcerated Brother, Hill Harper mentors a young imprisoned father who's life has been derailed due to his unfortunate incarceration. Throughout their first few letters, Hill writes from a place of guilt, sympathy and as well as awkwardness, as he feels awful for not being able to relate to the living conditions of this prison inmate. However, over time, the two develop an outstanding relationship as Hill becomes a viable mentor to this young incarcerated brother, helping him improve his attitude, life choices and education level throughout the process. The book is one of many in Hill Harper's "Letters" series, furthermore, this series of letters may just happen to be the most important one yet as Hill extends a helping hand to a young man that is in dire need of assistance to get his life back on track, but is in jeopardy of being swallowed whole by the prison industrial complex system.

I purchased this for a dear friend who is serving 24 year sentence. He wrote me as he began, was reading, and again when he finished the work. He loved it, and even began to write out some of the strategic work to think about his future. Big impact. Filled with multiple approaches, Harper shares stories, anecdotes, strategies all to support men of color who are incarcerated.
