2012 Reading Club Selection

The Chancellor's Reading Club selection for 2012 is The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in its Place, by Hill Harper.

About the Author

Hill Harper is an author, actor, activist, and entrepreneur. A Harvard graduate with multiple degrees, Mr. Harper has acted from an early age.  He is currently best known for his portrayal of Dr. Sheldon Hawkes on the television series CSI: NY.

About the Selection

“Redefining our proper relationship to money and wealth--participating in what I call the Wealth Cure--requires a return to some fundamental values that have been discarded. Sometimes we think we're in touch with what matters, but then something unexpected happens, a change takes place that propels us to reexamine our hearts to uncover what we truly value. We can create a new definition of abundance, which will lead us to a new way of living. This awareness and shift of focus form the basis of the Wealth Cure." - Hill Harper

Where to Find the Selection

Incoming freshmen must purchase the selection and read it before Orientation begins in August. The Wealth Cure can be found on sale at the FSU Bookstore. Purchase a copy at First Steps!

It is also available new, used, or as an e-book from Amazon.com, Apple iBooks, and Barnes & Noble, among other online sources.
