The Potential to be Great. All men have the potential to be great. Great husbands, great fathers, and great stewards of the community. Reginald Bean, youth mentor and founder of Ideas in Motion, shares stories from his own transition from misguided youth raised in 1980s Detroit to executive for a national corporation. Bean’s advice is clean-cut and refreshing; he writes not as a stern authority, but as a friend who’s been there and has your back. Complete with poignant lessons and reflective exercises, Unfinished is the perfect playbook for young men as they transition into adulthood.

“I have worked with male felons for over twenty-five years, and one widely held perspective that many of them share is a sense of feeling ‘alienated’ from the ‘mainstream society.’ Unfinished will serve as a guide for young men as they are reintroduced into society.”
