Main idea from Heroes for My Daughter

thesuccessmanual on 07/05/12 city: New-York tags: book summary  Comment: 0 Save: 0

Brad Meltzer's book is a lot like Jim Roger's (the famous investor) 'A Gift to my children' book. The only difference being that instead of pithy advice, Meltzer summarizes life stories of fifty-five remarkable people, from a diverse set of backgrounds, which Meltzer simplistically puts as having set out to make the world a better place.

The book is sort of a follow-up Meltzer's best-selling "Heroes for My Son" published in 2011. I wonder what's next? Heroes for my girfriend? I don't like the idea of dividing heroes for genders - heroes are heroes.  Ok, back to the point.

The main idea from the book is encapsulated in the introduction, where Meltzer writes:

"Forget the prince. With your brains and your resourcefulness, you can rescue yourself. And when you have your doubts - as we all inevitably do - you will have this book, full of people who were wracked with just as much fear, but who also found the internal strength to overcome it."

I would have liked this book as an app for $1, with cute drawings and quotes.
