In this cynical age, in which we are constantly reminded of our mistakes, perhaps it is worth recognizing that we are capable of greatness. Some of the decision-makers featured in this book were well aware of the gravity of what they were doing; others had no idea at all. Some were rich and powerful; others were ordinary people who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. From our unknown ancestors who first modified pieces of stone to make more sophisticated tools to those people in Northern Ireland who put aside their differences to create a better future, we take a look at stories of people who, when faced with crucial decisions, got them right.
