This is a special book and an especially good book. The author writes beautifully and her stories are interesting, compelling, entertaining, educational, and important. I learned a lot, about the world and, just as importantly, about empathy.

“She knows that stories have the power to change things: the past and the future, even the present.”
Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists

Michelle Obama
“Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child—What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.”
Michelle Obama, Becoming

David Litt
“The secret to solving big problems, I learned, is knowing which little problems to ignore.”
David Litt, Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years

Edith Eger
“Time doesn't heal. It’s what you do with the time. Healing is possible when we choose to take responsibility, when we choose to take risks, and finally, when we choose to release the wound, to let go of the past or the grief.”
Edith Eger, The Choice: Embrace the Possible

“So often when we are unhappy it is becasue we are taking too much responsibility or we are taking too little. Instead of being assertive and choosing clearly for ourselves, we might become aggressive (choosing for others) or passive (letting others choose for us), or passive-aggressive (choosing for others by preventing them from achieving what they are choosing for themselves).”
Edith Eva Eger, The Choice: Embrace the Possible
