About this title


Addresses the problem of insecurity and fears of inferiority with advice drawn from his own experiences and from the recollections of famous achievers including Jack Anderson, John Glenn, Alex Haley, and Marlo Thomas

From Library Journal:

Anderson, the youthful editor of Parade , explores the anger, fear of failure, and feelings of inadequacy and insecurity we all confront in our efforts to achieve dignity. To examine these topics, he uses both personal experience and the stories of celebrities who found the courage to turn their fears to success, always concluding with specific recommendations. The book has flaws: it seems to be directed at adults, yet adults who haven't learned most of its lessons need more help than they'll find here. Its style, intended to strain no one, resembles a television program: there is too much first-name intimacy and not enough substance. Readers may be entertainedeven inspiredto learn how certain celebrities overcame genuine obstacles and turned their fears into success, but they shouldn't expect much more. Kari D.
