This is an amazing book. It's a collection of stories of ordinary people who have achieved greatness. This is focused on the African Americans. Unfortunately I think some people may think you have to be a certain race to read the book.. This would be a sad mistake... This book should be more widely known than it is. Mr. Kimbro, Where are you.. a second helping of what make the great great, would be awesome!
