While this book is written for "young readers" I think adults will find a lot of inspiration in it as well.
This is perfect for today's kids -- to give them the inspiration, the inspiration that they can achieve a lot of things and change their world, even change the world!
This book is beautifully written and beautifully illustrated in a way that makes William's success story that much more powerful.
