Additional Information

Likened to a 48 Laws of Power for young Black men, this book presents Black biographies, history, and current events in a language that the Hip-Hop generation will understand and relate to. Each story or essay is framed within the context of a life lesson, each one being of vital importance to the survival, redemption, and ultimate success of our dying Black generation. Both the positive and negative sides of the Black experience are explored in detail, from the lives of infamous drug dealers and pimps to the exploits of Black revolutionaries and activists. In addition, several How To sections outline simple strategies for self-development. Packed with useful information, from the best way to handle confrontations with police, to the continuing relevance of the 1919 race riots, this book has been compared to an urban Encyclopedia Africana. Others have called it a Blueprint for Black Power for a generation struggling with materialism and short attention spans. This book is guaranteed to change the world by changing the way millions of people think and live. In How to Hustle and Win, author Supreme Understanding tells, in often graphic detail, stories like that of the infamous Philadelphia Black Mafia, Harlem's heroin kingpin Frank Lucas, and former gang leader Stanley "Tookie" Williams. In between and throughout these tales, he weaves life lessons and guidance, turning sordid stories of crime and urban despair into an educational experience. Whereas Robert Greene's bestselling 48 Laws of Power used iconic figures from classical history to illustrate the guidelines for personal success, How to Hustle and Win is filled with the exploits of rappers, gangsters, radicals, and revolutionaries. This is a new kind of Black history book, and its intent is the motivation and achievement of a new kind of reader. Although today's literary market has seen an influx of self-help books attending to a variety of issues, few books have attempted to address the concerns of young Black men, struggling to find direction. It is this group that author Supreme Understanding names as one of most troubled demographics in American society today. On the book's website, the author comments: "Unfortunately, few authors actively target this audience, and those who do are either not speaking their language, or not interested in pushing for change. This is why How to Hustle and Win was written. This book will change the minds of millions of young men of color, and by doing this, it will ultimately change the world." Revolutionary aspirations aside, How to Hustle and Win's groundbreaking concept results in a truly appealing work. Its essays are delivered in short bursts, none of them over four pages long, making it ideal for struggling readers and those with shorter attention spans. At the same time, the book is filled with a wealth of information that would enlighten educated readers equally. In fact, the author juxtaposes his own personal tales of early delinquency and misdirection with his later years of professional success, including obtaining a doctorate in education at the age of 26.

First off, I'd like to thank my barber Keith for throwing this one my way, I was just going in for a haircut, and I think we started talking about books, and I must say, I was a skeptic at first. For one, heads is always trying to hustle somethin' in the barbershop, most of the time-from my experience at least-it aint no good. I been through too many barbers trying to run a hustle on me. I'd be the loyal customer for years, and dudes would try and rise prices outta nowhere, not be persistent with the cuts and all that nonsense, but this dude was different. How was he different? For one, he sold me this book, and he's persistent in his cuts, same price all the time.
Lol, anyways I took this book home, and thought I'd skim around and see what it was about, and I was sucked right in. I was reading "Click" a book on networking, but had to put that down for a minute, and I was just 50 pgs. shy of finishing that. This book has a lifetime worth of food for thought: lessons from the... Read more
What makes Supreme Understanding qualified to write a book entitled "How to Hustle and Win"? He has robbed people, bought, sold and used drugs, been arrested and gone to jail. He's been a rapper, a spoken word artist, owned a million dollars worth of real estate by age 24. He graduated from college with honors and got his doctorate by age 26. These are just a few things that make him qualified; he knows first hand "the streets" and he only bettered himself to get away from them.

I would like to thank this author for reminding me of all of the things that I had forgotten and giving me the added spark that was needed for me to reach and teach the youth! This book is for anyone young and old who has any interactions with the young. Although many may think that this book is for young males alone, I have found that there are things in this book that have no gender barriers. This book should be on every bookshelf in Urban America!!! It should be used as a learning tool in schools and it should be given as holiday gifts instead of the typical gift. This book is more valuable than any diamond, any pair of Nikes or any Game System. This is a REAL JEWEL. Youth, know that there are people who have been where you are and have Hustled to Win to get where they are now. Learn the rules to the game and never lose again.
