Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

An anthology of life-stories from the Dalai Lama, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Brigitte Bardot, and Helen Thomas, among others, to show how their "simple" actions changed the world. The celebrity appeal will be strong, but the spiritual impact of often self-involved narratives will be scant. For some collections.
