Overview

Boys Who Rocked the World: Heroes from King Tut to Bruce Lee by Michelle Roehm McCann, David Hahn

Meet young men with grand goals in these profiles of forty-six movers and shakers who made their mark before they turned twenty.

This engaging and thought-provoking collection of influential stories provides forty-six illustrated examples of strong, independent male role models, all of whom first impacted the world as teenagers or younger. This updated and expanded edition of Boys Who Rocked the World encompases a variety of achievements, interests, and backgrounds, from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Steve Jobs to Crazy Horse and Stephen King—each with his own incredible story of how he created life-changing opportunities for himself and the world. Personal aspirations from today’s young men are interspersed throughout the book, which also includes profiles of teenagers who are rocking the world right now—boys like John Collinson, the youngest person to climb the Seven Summits, and Alec Loorz, who founded the nonprofit organization Kids vs. Global Warming.
It’s never too soon to start making a difference, and this empowering collection of accomplished young men makes for ideal motivation.
