I enjoyed reading the stories of each of the individuals that were showcased in this book. It is nice see how others can overcome certain situations and become successful. The author did a good job in the telling of each story. Reading this book gives you the courage to know that you too can live outside the box and do whatever your heart desires and be successful. Each person had their own struggles and you will learn how they overcame them to become what they are – successful people. If you are looking for a book that will give you motivation to pursue your dreams then this would be a great book for you. I enjoy reading books about how everyday people with their own struggles turn things around to become successful business people as it makes me feel as if I can do this too. A very good motivational book.

I really loved reading this book and the stories of ten unique people. My very first true story book that I ever read. I hope it is not my last. Each story is so unique and all are very inspiring to me. One factor this book is so amazing is the hard work that each person revealed. You will learn story from fashion, music, poetry to name a  few. Each story will motivate you to enjoy life and the fruit of success that everyone learned. Most of the people started from their humble beginning. It is very powerful book to reflect life. Each chapter has so much love to share to any readers. I highly recommend this book. You will learn places near or far and most of all names that you will never forget.  The unique book I ever read. It gives me inspiration and for everybody too when you turn each pages of this book.

A look at some of the masterminds behind the brands and personalities we know today. Wilson's writing is straightforward, almost documentary-like in her facts and chronology, making them quick to read. But always there is this underlying agenda to motivate and inspire readers to follow her subjects, like bedtime stories for the ambitious dreamers.
