Throughout history, there are far more than some fifty-five achievers ─ as we know. However, this author gives insight into the honors of fifty-five achievers. The details are short and easy to read. There is a two- page write up for each. Behind those pages, the reader will find a pictorial showing and a brief biography of their accomplishments. The people identified in the book are Heroes in their own personal way. Those for which the author elected to speak about may not have been ones’ you or I would have readily chosen as “Heroes”. Just to list a few, we’ll learn about people that are titled as: champion; icon; comedian; visionary; adventurer; leader; conservationist; angel; lawbreaker; pot stirrer; pioneer; rebel; and the list goes on and on and on. All in all, they are (in a special way) achievers that have gifted us with their accomplishments. Whenever a person makes a difference in what they do, truly, that is a testimony. And they are somebody’s Hero. Changing a life – Taking a stand – Giving a life; whatever their cause ─ I too salute them.

Now, as a recognized author, it may not have been his best work. But the story is one to be told and would be a great gift for educational purposes. Many of those mentioned may not have made it in our schoolbooks while growing up. But, they’re positioned in this book. For that which they've achieved they are Heroic Achievers. Thanks, Brad, for bringing light to these wonderful people. ( )

This book is a wonderful read. I loved it and already gave it to my daughter to read. Every person(s) that Brad Meltzer chose for this book was a wonderful inspirational for anyone to read about. I loved that Brad had quotes from or about each hero and that he had people from his life that are his heroes. Great book. I absolutely loved it. ( )
