The author who started as a screenwriter of Disney films segued into writing biographies of popular sports figures. The result was charming page-turners for all ages. This new book is an amazingly well-timed departure from sports, (although it includes some world-champion boat racers). Somehow Part had the incredible intuition to begin writing when Thunberg’s voice was just starting to burst onto the world stage in March 2019.
The book is now released almost to the day that Thunberg arrived by solar powered racing boat to the United States. Her story as depicted by Part is a fastidiously researched cross between a fairy tale and a biopic. It’s even the perfect feature film length at 118 pages and ready for the big screen for any production company smart enough to option it.
Not previously having an interest in sports biographies, this is my first purchase of one of Michael Part’s books. But this crossover has made me a fan and I’m already planning on reading more from him!
Thank you for delivering a significant and insightful message in a normal-life manner. This one very young person demonstrates that her “different” cognitive processing has gifted her with both consciousness and a conscience in leadership. Greta’s difference has given her two types of highly unrecognized forms of intelligence -- courage and responsibility.
Our next generation is unfairly burdened with the past-due bills of previous generations. They face crushing consequences in the environment, politics, and social relations. Hopefully, all who read this will be inspired to realize their unique abilities and follow Greta's example in making a difference with their difference.
I personally enjoyed the descriptions of her family and how the Thunbergs live their values.

Is states no one talked to her at all, zero people on her first day of the strike except an MP, who had no name. Totally untrue!
The day was filmed as can be found in the documentary - I Am Greta - and a number of people talked to her. But no mysterious MP! It is stated in the book she had no flyers, until the third day, yet they are sitting in front of her on the first day. Numerous reporters talked to her too on the first day and people taking her photo and posting on social media!
And the book carries on in the same vane with numerous inaccuracies in every chapter! Saying she recovered from an eating disorder by eating fish - she was vegan! Saying her mother and father gave up flying in August 2018 because of her upcoming school strike, yet they quit a long time before!
As for the private conversations between the family on every occasion, totally cloud cuckoo land, unless he's bugged their flat!
Avoid! If you want the story up to the strike read Greta's Mother's biography - Our House Is On Fire.
If this is the standard of his other books - avoid them too!
