The audio edition is very inspiring.
Meb's coming to the US with his impoverished family is an awesome moment. His father encouragesthe children to study hard, and they all, in different ways, race ahead of their US peers, taking nothing for granted, showing no sense of entitlement. I think it's very encouraging.
The reading is heartfelt and warm.
The family's attitude of gratitude and humiliation when coming ot the US is inspiring. I think that Meb's choice of competing for the US or Eritrea juxtaposes hie entire life and dual entity in a practical and focused manner. It's about gratitude and grand gesture - but also about picking the best deal, getting food on the table and so on.
