A short time ago, I began reading the forward of this book and happily anticipated completing it. I was not disappointed in the least. This is a book I will be keeping space for on my shelf (I’ll also be giving them as gifts). It is inspiring and based on the premise that the things that our differences are strengths to be celebrated (despite what advertisers, the media and society-at-large would have us believe). Chapters explore the beauty of individuality, spirituality, imperfection, anxiety, heartbreak, language, adventure and agelessness. The author’s exquisite photography compliments stories of unforgettable men and women. While I enjoyed all of these, my favorite anecdotes came from the author’s personal story.
