I received this book for review but having read some of Brad Meltzer's other work before I was looking forward to this book This is not a novel but rather a collection of vignettes I suppose about many people who he considered heroic because of their words actions or most likely a combination of bothHowever rather than share the well known facts about these people that many of us are familiar with Meltzer instead chose these fascinating details and I found myself often reading snippets out loud to my family Like did you know that Thomas Jefferson was 33 when he wrote the Declaration of Independence I didn't know that and now I'm feeling a bit like a slacker because I'M 33 and I often don't even write my grocery listThis uick read will make a great gift to the loved ones in your life not just sons but your daughters too

Heroes for my SonMy Son brings well known figures together with less famous ones telling the inspiring behind the scenes stories of the moment that made them great They are a miraculous group with one thing in common each is an example of the spectacular potential that can be found in all of usHeroes for My Son is an unforgettable book of timeless wisdom one that families everywhere can share again and again. This wasn't the book I thought it was I bought this thinking it was the book about the dying father who had his friends step in to teach his children about life If anyone knows what that book is please let me know Anyhow I thought I'd read this anyhow It's a short book each page includes a photo of the hero a short paragraph or two about their feat and a phrase Some of the people were to be expected some had new but interesting stories some made me realize it's the little things that are important I think it would make a nice coffee table book but since mine is messy already I'm going to give this to a friend that I think would enjoy it for herself and maybe for her two sons
