He wrote a couple of pages about each of these people, from presidents (Washington, Lincoln, Obama ) to entertainers (Jim Henson, Mr. Rogers, John Lennon ) to wonderfully brave people like Miep Gies, who risked her life every day to protect Anne Frank and her family.
I love books like this. I remember reading Paul Harvey's book, The Rest of the Story, years ago and being fascinated by the events that shape people's lives. I thank Mr. Meltzer for a break from the daily newscasts and a reminder of all the good that people have to offer.
