Few individuals impact the day-to-day management of organizations and institutions as Dennis Kimbro. A tireless educator, author, and B-school professor, Dr. Kimbro is universally characterized as one of the most insightful and scholarly writers in the field today.

As a lecturer and researcher in the field of management, entrepreneurship and human potential, he encourages his readers to look within to extract the keys that underlie all accomplishment. He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Oklahoma, and a doctorate from Northwestern University where he studied wealth and poverty among underdeveloped countries.

With his course work behind him, Dr. Kimbro combed the country interviewing scores of America?s most notable achievers. Eventually his inquisition led to the question: How can impoverished black Americans pull themselves out of their poverty and reach their full potential?

To broaden and enhance the scope of the project, Dr. Kimbro studied the methodology of Napoleon Hill, author of the phenomenal best seller Think and Grow Rich. Using Think and Grow Rich as a reference, Dr. Kimbro decided to do what Hill had done in the 1930's. He devel-oped a survey to use among peak performing black Americans. Two years later, he learned from the foundation bearing Hill's name that, Hill himself, had drafted a book in 1970 that explored the identical question. Moreover, Hill had written nearly one hundred pages on the subject, which turned out to be his last. After a personal meeting with W. Clement Stone, president of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, Dr. Kimbro was commissioned to update and complete Hill's original manuscript. Think and Grow Rich: A Black Choice, the results of Dr. Kimbro's and Hill's efforts, distills the secrets of success contained in the lives of peak performing men and women, and reveals how readers can use utilize these keys to make their dreams come true.

Dennis is married and the father of three daughters, Kelli, Kimberli, and MacKenzie. His honors include various awards bestowed by the business community as well as the Dale Carnegie ?Personal Achievement? award. Currently, Dr. Kimbro teaches on the faculty at the Clark Atlanta University School of Business Administration. In 1996, he served as one of eight national judges for the prestigious Ernst & Young USA Today Entrepreneur of the Year held in Palm Springs, California.

Kimbro's writings have influenced readers from the streets of Melbourne, Australia, to Johannesburg, South Africa to Seoul, South Korea, to Reykjavik, Iceland. From the board-rooms of General Motors, Walt Disney Corp., Frito-Lay, and Citigroup to name a few. He has addressed the Notre Dame 'Fighting Irish' football team as well as the Kansas City Royals Base-ball team. He has appeared on the Today Show, Larry King, CNN, and has been featured in Success!, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and USA Today on numerous occasions shar-ing the keys to success and achievement. Dr. Kimbro's highest honor occurred when the Nat?l Black MBA Association presented him with the "2005 H. Naylor Fitzhugh" award, emblematic of the top black business professor in the nation. As the author of "Daily Motivations for African American Success" and the highly acclaimed "What Makes the Great Great: Strategies for Extraordinary Achievement," his fourth book, "What Keeps Me Standing: A Black Grand-mother's Guide to Peace, Hope and Inspiration" (Doubleday), has appeared on several best sellers lists.
