This is a book review of Hill Harper's, The Wealth Cure. It speaks to our heart attitude about money. Are we characterized by the pursuit of it or use money to achieve a greater goal, a greater good?
The book's prologue alone is an incredible course in basic financial fundamentals that could easily be turned into a standalone mini course. The entire thesis of The Wealth Cure is summed up when the author states that, "We must reassess the exalted place that we award to money and stop worshiping 'Benjamins.' It is OK to appreciate money; the challenge is to make sure its value is in balance with the other sources of wealth in our lives."
This is a personal journey story about Hill Harper. A story that is steeped in medical analogies (hence the book's title) given that his family is "deeply rooted in the medical fields."
Hill starts off the first chapter of The Wealth Cure with an incredible bang by asking the question, "Am I using money or is money using me?" This made me stop to ponder and reflect, making sure that my own attitude about money lives up to the reputation of which I write to you, my website and newsletter readers, as what Mr. Hill teaches throughout The Wealth Cure. It is such a passion near and dear to my own heart

New York Times best-selling author Hill Harper's ultimate purpose is to wake up in his readers a restlessness that will be transformed into action; to be cured of seeing money as the end, but the means to greater good and internal joy.
I give this book a $$$$$ rating.
And Hill, I am glad your surgery went well and you beat the cancer; that you have Sean as such a good friend, and you love your wife. And most importantly that, in the end, you indeed acknowledge that "God is good" and he is the one from whom all blessings flow.
Since all good book reviews have some sort of improvement suggestion, this one is in dire need of an index as 256 pages is a lot to flip through to revisit a particular concept or story. What page do you talk about the need for household budgeting?
