Item Description...
The film and television star draws on personal experiences to present a series of motivational letters that explores such topics as the value of a good education and the media's inappropriate emphasis on material wealth.

Publishers Description
Offering inspirational advice in a down-to-earth style, this unique compilation of letters provides wisdom, guidance, and heartfelt insight to help the reader chart their own path to success. Based on the author's motivational speaking at inner-city schools across the country, the letters deal with the tough issues that face young people today.

Bombarded with messages from music and the media, Harper set out to dispel the stereotypical image of success that young people receive today and instead emphasizes alternative views of what it truly means to be a successful male, such as educational and community achievements and self-respect. Intended to provide this frequently regarded "lost generation" of young men with words of encouragement and guidance, Harper's deep-rooted passion regarding the plight of today's youth drove him to write this book, sure to change the lives of readers for years to come.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This guy is Superman  Nov 2, 2008
I was told I should read this book after vaguely hearing about some of the things Hill Harper has said and done. I am not one to jump on anyone's bandwagon but I do know of a lot of black men that need something that will encourage them to excel in school and in their career. I was especially looking for something for my sons to read in this area.

After reading this book I felt like I had just listened to a reading from Superman. I thought I had done and gone through a lot in my life but this guy has more than his share, plus my wife told me about who his gorgeous girlfriend is and I was even more impressed.

With that being so good though and how great of a read I found it to be I can't give it a perfect score because of the fact that I think it will be a little hard for most young black men to relate to him because he is so perfect. Being from a perfect bloodline, star high school football player, college friend of Barrack Obama (who even wrote an excerpt in the book), Law degree from Harvard, TV/Movie star, and beautiful girlfriend make this hard to relate to. I know when I was a kid being told you can do it just because I've done it from a person that you never really felt struggled is a hard pill to swallow.

With that said, I'd still give this to any young man and let them try to swallow that pill.
This One Is OUTSTANDING!!!!  Sep 7, 2008
Hill Harper has given us a rare gem. This book should be "required" reading for all young men. I gave it as gifts to my nephew and my cousin. I also encouraged a co-worker to read it and she's preparing to give it to her son and other young men. It's an "easy read". The letters and advice given are poignant, timely, educational and insightful. Down to earth, excellent advice for growing up and everyday living. I especially enjoyed the chapter on the importance of school/education. And the emphasis on being "incredibly happy". Hill is a gifted man with a heart and soul for service. I look forward to his future writings.
Encouraged me!   Aug 6, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed Letters to a Young Brother and will be passing it along! So many of Hill's theories can be applied to everyone's daily movement. Great Job!
I did NOT know  Jul 22, 2008
That one of favorite ACTORS, was not only a Brown and Harvard graduate but an awesome writer as well. After reading such high reviews on here I decided to order the book. I have 2 boys, 9 and 7, that aren't quite to the age level of this book, but they well definately be reading it as they approach their tween years. After reading it there is advise and pearls of wisdom that should be applied to adulthood, male or female. I love the fact that he talks on a level that is very relatable to young boys and that he gathers insite from known entertainers, which imo draws the youth in that much more. As many are raised by the TV, movies, and mush so something that their favorite actor/actress (Anthony Anderson, Ray J Gabreille Union, Sanaa Lathan) sports figure (Venus Williams, Curtis Martin), or rapper (Nas, David Banner, Ice Cube) says may come across as cool and strike accord with them. Presidential nominee Barak Obama even contributes. I just ordered Letters To a Young Sister, DeFINE Your Destiny, cant wait to start reading it.
Good Book  Jul 14, 2008
I brought this book as a gift for my twentysomthing brother. Who is a not an avid reader, but he enjoyed this book.
