"John Bryant uses conversational, non-threatening language to engage the reader into thinking about and adopting workable personal financial strategies."
—Kweisi Mfume, NAACP, President and CEO
"Teaching the fundamentals of finance to children and families is an instrumental and positive step in increasing ownership and responsibility among middle and lower class families. As such, I believe that this book, and its program, will serve as an important resource from which communities can declare their financial independence."
—Rep.Charles B. Rangel
