Wes Moore seems like an interesting dude with a fascinating life. I might read his other, more popular book "The Other Wes Moore" sometime. It really is cool to know that this dude tried so hard to screw up and somehow (mostly by loving family and wicked quick wits) he ended up a huge success.

This book was OK. It's just him telling stories about people living good, honorable, productive lives. He has a special affinity for underdogs, and he takes care to show how any one life could have gone in a totally different direction, had different choices been made.

His whole point was to inspire readers to do stuff that matters to them. To serve.

I wouldn't call it super inspiring but it was OK. The people whose stories he told where interesting enough.

A good book to rest your brain on and just let yourself be surrounded by mostly happy stories.
