Greatness doesn’t come from getting your name in the news, piling up degrees, or landing one powerful position after another. No, greatness springs from character, the critical, self-determined element that defines a person.
The concise and compelling Real Heroes gives us forty flesh-and-blood models of character in action, showing us how to put principles to work in everyday life.
“We learn by stories, and this powerful, well-written book gives us forty superb ones. They couldn’t be more timely in an age that is experiencing too much bluster, blather, exhibitionism, and ignorance. Real Heroes will inspire us all to nurture the better angels of our nature.” —Steve Forbes, chairman and editor in chief of Forbes Media
