American businessman Jim Rohn once said, “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” It is often important to learn not only from traditional education, but also from one’s own experiences. Author Bobby Richardson’s novel , “The Neighborhood” (published by AuthorHouse) is a contemporary rags-to-riches story, told with an urban twist designed to entertain and provoke deep thought.

“I developed an unrelenting urge to serve people an entertaining message that glorifies the benefits of education appreciation,” Richardson explains, “philosophical wisdom, healthy thinking, ambition, determination and other positive qualities that I believe can literally improve the quality of my readers’ lives.”

An excerpt from “The Neighborhood”:

“Here’s the deal. These people around here are serious people. They are serious about making money. They are professionals. They don’t play around when it comes to making money. They don’t take it lightly. They don’t hang out and drink wine all day. They may smile and look friendly and all that, but the fact is that they are well trained in what it takes to make money. That’s what we do here---make money! These agents compete to see who makes the most money. They win prizes for making the most money—like vacations, cash bonuses, etc. Our managers compete against other managers to see who’s team can make the most money. It’s all about money around here. That manual that’s in your hands is the first step necessary to start you on your way to make big money.”

Richardson is hopeful that “The Neighborhood´will have a positive impact. He states, “My deepest desire is that each reader will take away from this book that healthy thinking and hard work attracts success just as efficiently as the shortcuts of deviant behavior, which often led to jail or the grave.”
