Acquisto, a journalist-turned-lawyer, didn't have a book in mind when he began writing to the most famous and successful people of our time. His simple goal was to celebrate the birth of his first child by collecting for little Nick the wisdom of these icons on the subjects of life, happiness, and success. But the letters that came back were so wonderful and compelling, they demanded to be shared with a wider audience. Over 250 sports heroes, entertainers, journalists, authors, business moguls, and politiciansincluding three U.S. Presidentscontributed to this precious and moving collection of wit and wisdom about how to create a life well-lived. Perfect for graduation gifts and to commemorate other important beginnings, these very special letters will delight and inspire readers of all ages for years to come.
