About the Book

Heroes for My Son

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer brings together a remarkable group of heroes with one thing in common: they were ordinary people who became extraordinary.

Brad was inspired by the birth of his first son to curate this collection, but you don’t need to be a parent to treasure it --- HEROES FOR MY SON is perfect for children, parents, teachers, and anyone looking for inspiration. The 52 featured figures represent the spectacular potential we all have within us to change the world. The format allows for reading straight through or at your own pace, and includes photos, quotes, brief biographies and vignettes that highlight the single moment that made each person great. The wonderfully diverse heroes included in the book are men, women, historical, contemporary, athletes, actors, inventors, politicians and so many more.

HEROES FOR MY SON is a book to be read again and again, as the simple question of what makes a hero remains a vital part of today’s conversation.
