9780385483964: What Makes the Great Great: Strategies for Extraordinary Achievement

Part vocational pep rally, part how-to book, in What Makes the Great Great, bestselling author Dennis Kimbro explores the strategies and thought processes of successful African-Americans.

What Makes the Great Great elaborates on the inspiring message Dennis Kimbro put forth in his first book Think and Grow Rich--A Black Choice. Through dozens of interviews and the inspirational stories of people like John H. Johnson, Publisher of Ebony magazine, Condoleeza Rice, Provost of Stanford University, and Ann Fudge, President of Maxwell House Coffee, Dr. Kimbro outlines the nine strategies that determine success.

According to Dr. Kimbro, being great depends on a commitment to making dreams come true: "All high achievers make choices, not excuses." We all have the seeds of greatness in us, and his book gives readers the tools to discover and nurture those seeds, showing them how to motivate themselves to master every aspect of their lives.

From the Publisher:

"I read Dennis Kimbro's book just before the 1996 football season began. It certainly put me in a positive frame of mind to feel that we could do the impossible mission. I'm sure it will have the same effect on you."
--Lou Holtz, head football coach, University of Notre Dame

"A four-star winner! Kimbro's book is alive with the scientific principles that will lead you to success--using the gifts and powers you already have. It's riveting, realistic, and supercharged with exciting stories of black achievers who discovered the real secret of wealth and success: Whatever you fix your mind on, you will become."
--Success magazine

"Like the Olympic torch, this brilliant rekindling of timeless truth can lead a generation frustrated by discrimination and its resulting self-doubt out of the vicious circle and into the `victor's circle.' I have always believed that true wealth is an internal quality and that real success is color-blind. Dennis Kimbro has reignited this wisdom for all of us to share at a time when none of us can afford to drop the baton!"
--Dennis Waitley, author of The Psychology of Winning
