Overview

Part memoir, part how-to, tell me no. I dare you! is 100% inspiration.

A substance abuser near suicide turns his life around, starts what becomes a multi-million dollar non-profit, and helps tens of thousands of at-risk individuals back into the workplace, into society, into productive lives. Sounds like the basis of a screenplay, but in reality it is the life of CNN Hero Scott H. Silverman.

"Heroes are made, not born," proclaims Silverman. And in this always honest, often poignant, sometimes hilariously funny book, Silverman proves his point. Travel with Scott through the streets of Turkey, Israel, Amsterdam, and the deserts of southern California as he finds the courage to live up to his potential. Connect with the hero within you as you accept the challenge to turn your No's into action-filled Yeses.
