5.0 out of 5 stars A Dynamic & Inspirational Message, October 13, 2009

John Hope Bryant is a man of conviction; dynamic & inspiring. His program, Operation HOPE has given hope to communities in their pursuit of a fearless path to economic prosperity. This book delivers a message of hope for anyone, that we can live our lives fearlessly, and with purpose; it's all about focusing on helping others first.

To the self-absorbed cynics throughout society, Bryant's message of "hope" may be perceived as nothing more than tired platitudes, with no real practical benefit in the real world. Wrong. His logic is sound; his advice relevent. This is a book that has very real, pragmatic solutions for much of our social challenges. We just have to read it and heed the advice.

Bryant's central theme revolves around eliminating the "fear-based" attitudes that seem to have taken over the world. I've been ranting about a "fear-based" culture permeating corporate America for quite some time; how it's killing innovation, employee morale, and productivity. Bryant takes that same concept and projects it to the world as a whole. It's time society changes that mindset. It's time to stop thinking about "Number One". That way of thinking has put us in the mess we're in today. Change is critical to our long-term well-being as a society.

Bryant is a true visionary, with a wonderful message to deliver. I hope the world listens, for its own sake.
