What makes people do the things they do? Where do great ideas come from? What inspires people to do the extraordinary?
In this fascinating collection of short stories based on real events, you will read about six people that went the extra mile and changed their own and other people's lives forever. We hope that you will be astonished when you read about Roz Savage rowing across the Atlantic Ocean alone, and William Kamkwamba providing his village in Africa with electricity. We want you to be interested in how Louis Vuitton became the world-famous name it is today, and how Stewart Brand asked a simple question that resulted in us seeing our planet from space for the first time. You will certainly be impressed when you learn about Mo Zhengao, the principal who dedicated his life to helping poor students in rural China, and we hope you will be inspired by the story of the Venetian glass-makers who created mirrors, allowing us to see ourselves as we really are.
