At long last, John Hope Bryant lays out five simple rules to provide a path to economic liberation for anyone in any situation. The Memo provides a simple path from financial literacy and mindset shifts to ownership, positive relationships, and a completely new attitude toward money. In a provocative exploration of the intersections of race and class, Bryant preaches the definitive conclusion that to be free, one must be economically liberated. Those who suffer from poverty haven't gotten "the memo" - until now.

The MEMO is a must read for everyone, but especially for most African and Hispanic Americans. Many within other ethnic groups have their own memo, but most of us don’t. This book is a manifesto of the basic attitudes and actions necessary for financial liberation.

Andy Crouch unleashes a stirring manifesto calling Christians to be culture makers. For too long, Christians have had an insufficient view of culture and have waged misguided "culture wars." But we must reclaim the cultural mandate to be the creative cultivators that God designed us to be. Culture is what we make of the world, both in creating cultural artifacts as well as in making sense of the world around us. By making chairs and omelets, languages and laws, we participate in the good work of culture making.

The only downside to this book, was that the audio scratched in many places. Content and story was awesome. Congratulations
