This is a timely and excellent book which reminds us that heroism is to be found in the lives of ordinary people who meet life's challenges head on and thus gain their true identity.

The author has woven the transcripts of each story teller in such a way that we enter into their lives as intimately as if we were being told first hand. Collectively, they show that the Hero's Journey is the Inner Journey of finding one's true self in the midst of relating to others, being true to ourselves and following our particular passions and gifts and about finding the place where we truly belong.

This book touches the heart and gives courage to the soul of those who share the world of ordinary people with compassion.

This seems rather interesting and I would read it but I'm rather more interested in fictional things. Good start though! :D Keep writing, you have a gift for it!
