Joe Massengale grew up a poor African-American boy in Depression-era Texas, never imagining that he would one day be a successful businessman, race-horse owner, and father. In this book, Massengale distills his success into six learned principles: confidence, fortitude, persistence, pride, fearlessness, and focus. Each chapter elucidates one of these principles through tales from his own experience, reflections from prominent persons, and perspectives from each of his sons on the ways these values have shaped them.Part inspiring memoir, part practical motivation for building strong families and careers, Six Lessons for Six Sons is the rags-to-riches story of an exceptional father and the principles that helped him raise himself and his family from poverty in post-slavery America a century ago to thriving careers all over the United States today.
"The book is inspiring, and Massengale's 'regular guy' voice and emphasis on honesty and values will resonate for many readers". (Publishers Weekly)
