From Library Journal
Kimbro has tailored this deft rewriting of Napoleon Hill's ever-popular classic Think and Grow Rich (1937) to a black audience. Addressing issues like racism and poverty that can affect the achievement of black Americans, he offers a quick tour through black history, highlighting the stories of successful contemporary African Americans like Oprah Winfrey and publisher John Johnson. It works on the same level that the original did and should generate demand among African American patrons. An essential purchase for most institutional libraries, where all self-help books are in high demand.

Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich and Law of Success, in their many various versions, have sold millions of copies. Some time after his death in 1970, it was reported that Hill had left an unfinished manuscript targeting black America with his message of self-confidence and affirmative outlook. Kimbro, a black writer and lecturer for the Napoleon Hill Foundation, adapted and updated Hill's manuscript, which argues that such barriers as racism, discrimination, and lack of opportunity should not be self-defeating obstacles.

I hope to update this review when I find a less crappy copy of this book, but avoid the version with the black cover with money on the bottom. (See pictures)
Pg113 "before Lord Cornwall is surrendered" - Should be "before Lord Cornwallis surrendered
Pg 115 "penalties of an Mt of Henry VIII" - Should be "of an Act of Henry VIII"
Pg 119 "The habit of decisions acquired" Should be "The habit of indecision acquired". This one is critical as the context of the message is completety changed with the wrong word.
All I can add further is that "Think and Grow Rich - The Complete Classic Text" published by Tarcher Peguin & "Think and Grow Rich The Orginal Classic" published by Capstone seem to be the original text based on the 1937 edition.
Hope this helps others as it has been extremely frustrating studying this great book and finding errors in the print etc.
While this book is powerful and instructional it is not a magic wish book. It is a huge arrow pointed in the right direction and a good cornerstone for a success library.
It breaks down several chapters concerning approaches to creating wealth. The most unique aspect is that this book doesnt define the one sole chapter that has "the way". Instead It leads you through all the chapters and somewhere in them you formulate your personal concept of your success plan.
He then moves through the steps to achieving your goals and acquire wealth along the way. You start with desire. You have to want something. Then you visualize it and believe you'll get it. Tony Robbins does a bit of a variation on this. He calls the 'desire' a decision. When you think about it, that's what the desire really is. You decide you want something or you're going to do something. You might decide, "I'm getting a better job." You could even say, "I'm getting a better life," and it will work.
You simply have to figure out what it is you want, visualize getting it, and then set to work planning how you'll get it, and then start working. Nothing comes to him who just visualizes. You have to be active. Sometimes things will come to you in unexpected ways, and it will work on anything, large or small. You might decide you want to find a certain item in the store. You'll find it, and you won't have to vigorously go searching for it. You'll just end up in the store that has it.
Other times, for bigger things like a job, a car, a new house, etc., you'll be working along and opportunities will come up, often times without you even realizing that the opportunity is getting you to the thing you want. It's very hard to explain, but you'll understand what I mean if you start using these principles. I highly recommend this book. If you can find the a 1937 version at your library, I'd get it. If not, this one will work just as well. I highly recommend it. You can change your life for the better.
