Hill Harper’s (CSI: New York’s Dr Sheldon Hawkes) fourth book, The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in Its Place, hits store shelves tomorrow, August 23, and the actor faced a tough personal battle while he was writing it. Harper was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last year, but he is doing much better now. “Today, if we believe the doctors, I am doing pretty well,” he told Access Atlanta. Early detection was key, Harper said, and he did extensive research in addition to visiting multiple doctors.
This health crisis gave Harper a new perspective when he was writing The Wealth Cure, and he described America’s relationship with money as a “wealth virus”. “At the end of the day, this personal debt crisis we are seeing right now is across the board,” Harper explained. “Ultimately, we need to re-evaluate our relationship to money as a society and not just as individual groups or demographic groups.”
