This book is inspirational. To see so many people follow their dreams, break out of their constraints, get off the couch and just do it is a joy to experience! The straight forward, well written accounts of challenge, success, and achievement from such diverse walks of life and backgrounds, helped me to see that through guts, sweat, smarts, and determination, possibilities abound. Well done!
