    Throughout the course of time, there have been those people who have helped to change the world for the better. This book looks at seven men and women who made amazing contributions to society, some with their intellect and wisdom and some just with their love. By looking at the lives and life-changing actions of these people, we can learn about how wonderful things came about and how sometimes small things can make huge differences.
    This book was quite inspiring to me. There is so much fantastic information about these people who have done so many amazing things. Of course, I'm not sure how the author was able to keep it to only seven people. There are some people that I would love to have seen in there, but I can't argue with any of the people included for sure. Some made amazing scientific contributions and some just made contributions with the way they lived their lives. It's amazing to see how they were able to accomplish so much good. Sometimes I think they weren't even aware of how their lives would affect so many others. This is a great example to us to keep trying our best as we never know how it will help someone else.
    I enjoyed all of the life stories in this book, but I found Marie Curie to be of particular interest for me. She really lived an amazing life, and her contributions to the world have allowed for amazing medical advancements. I think that this book made me really want to just try to be the best I can be. That's really all these people were doing. Trying to make life better in a way that they could. Luckily for us they were able to make amazing things happen. I think families would benefit from learning about all of these people and looking for ways they can change their own little worlds. Definitely check this book out to be inspired and ready to take on anything!

    If you had to name just 7 people to represent the giants among men, who would you choose?
    I am SO IMPRESSED with Ted Stewart's choices!
    And his explanations for WHY he chose these 7 are so enlightening!
    I have never thought about not only the world-wide, but also, time-wide differences these 7 amazing people made in order for our lives to be better today.
    This book gives you greater understanding and appreciate for:

    Abraham or Ur
    Pericles the Greek
    Paul-Apostle to the Gentiles
    The Incomparable Mr. Newton
    Madame Marie Curie
    Dr. Marin Luther King, Jr.
    Mother Teresa

    These 7 giants "individually and collectively altered the way that we are governed, the way that we think, the way that we act, the nature of our aspirations, the priorities that we pursue, what we understand, and the comforts that we enjoy."
    They have made our lives, and us, better!

    DON'T JUST READ THIS BOOK...
    LET IT CHANGE YOU INTO A GIANT!

    HOW?
    Truly love those within your home, school, work, community.
    Reach out to someone who is lonely, depressed, or in need of help.
    Take on the curse of pornography and the degrading of American culture.
    Fight those forces and influences that are destroying America's family.
    Fight against racism and bigotry.
    Study the sciences...cures for diseases still need to be found.
    Give generously to a charity.
