Synopsis

Alexander Norton's life story serves as an excellent case study about how some blacks have and can overcome barriers in their pursuit of the American Dream. Norton, with just a fifth grade education, went from washing dishes to operating a million dollar construction business on Long Island, NY, and finding success in the stock market. During his lifetime, he boxed professionally, he even trained with Floyd Paterson. One of the best things that ever happed to Norton was his discharge from the armed forces and one of the worst things to ever happen to him was the sudden death of his beloved first wife. Making the System Work for You will motivate, encourage, and inspire readers while also informing them about historic and contemporary matters related to the racial wealth gap in America.
