‘This book can save lives. This book can change lives. This book can help to bring forth another generation of boys who dare to be different.’ - Benjamin Zephaniah
Prince charming, dragon slayer, mischievous prankster… more often than not, these are the role-models boys encounter in the books they read at home and at school.
Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different offers a welcome alternative narrative. From Salvador Dali to Barack Obama, welcome to an extraordinary compilation of 100 stories of famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day.
All saw, and dealt with the world differently. All are rule-breakers and innovators; all have achieved amazing things. For those who need the courage to reject peer pressure and go against the grain, this book seeks to inspire. The must-have book for all those boys who worry about stuff and all those parents who worry about their boys who worry about stuff.
