about this item
Brad Meltzer, the bestselling author of a string of legal thrillers, also moonlights as a writer for D.C. Comics, so he definitely knows heroes. But you won't find Batman or the Flash in this collection of real-life icons whose lives reflect the qualities Meltzer hopes his son will aspire to. Meltzer profiles more than 50 heroes, including the Wright Brothers, Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Muhammad Ali, John Lennon, Jim Henson, and Mr. Rogers, detailing how each of them exemplifies what's possible if you pursue your dreams without being afraid to occasionally fail.
Since the birth of his son seven years ago, the #1 best-selling author of
The Book of Fate has been collecting heroes from whom his son can learn how to live a good life; now, he shares the stories of 54 heroes--including Charlie Chaplin, Harper Lee & Jackie Robinson--with parents everywhere. 150,000 first printing.
