What a wonderful surprise this book was. The fact that it is based on the author's life made it an incredible read. I do not know if it would have been as powerful to read as hearing his voice but this kind of book can change your life. It should be required reading in our high schools. I laughed, cried and was inspired by this amazing man's story.
Rarely has a nonfiction book brought me to tears but Team of Rivals did just that. This wonderful biography has a brilliant perspective on Lincoln's cabinet and his time in office.
Jack Gantos has outdone himself with this delightful memoir about growing up in the 60s in a community of ecentric characters. Having him read the book made it even better. I love Jack Gantos even more now. I was sad when the book was done as I miss the people he introduced us to.
I shared this marvelous short story with my 4th graders, they really had to think about the ending but they loved it!
What an amazing book. I don't read much nonfiction but Laura Hillenbrand does such an amazing job of braiding so many stories seemlessly that her work is hard to put down.
Inspiring and difficult to hear this is a must read.
Very informative and easy to follow, yet so much fascinating information! His engaging style finds us unknown as well as familiar heros from our scientific past.
