50 true stories of people who dared to dream they could make a difference
by Daryn Kagan
Meredith Books, 2008
I love reading inspirational stories, so to find a book packed with 50 of them was fantastic. Each story tells of how the individual discovered his or her passion and followed through on it. The choices made were not necessarily lucrative, but certainly the people involved found more fulfillment in living out their dreams and in helping others than in any kind of 9-5 or higher-prestige endeavour.
Reading this book excited me and encouraged me to keep pursuing my own dreams and to keep thinking of creative ways to make a difference in the world.
