We all learn from our own experiences, but this book offers the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others. And not just any people, but a select group who have preserved and succeeded in a variety of fields. Meet writers, actors, athletes, politicians, entrepreneurs, developers, directors, musicians, evens an animal therapist.
Some have won Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, Grammys. Some even a Pulitzer or a Cy Young.
What they share in common is that they successfully pursued their dreams. Isn’t that what we all want to do?
Even if you think you already know about some of the people profiled, accomplished author, screenwriter and humorist Burt Prelutsky’s interviews provide whole new insights. He gets them to reveal not just obstacles they overcame to success, but also their favorite books, films and the influential people in their lives. He gets them to reveal what they would change most about America and about themselves, as well as the role religion plays in their life, and how much money matters to them.
“And whatever you think you know about them,” Prelutsky says, “I’m willing to wager you don’t know the eight people, living or dead, that they would invite to a dinner party.”
