Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The journey from adolescence to adulthood is a momentous time in every person's life. Never has this transition been more challenging than it is today. In addition to the perennial trials of peer pressure, hormones and popularity, young men and women must now grapple with a media-saturated culture that places enormous emphasis on physical appeal, material wealth and celebrity status. And, thanks to the growing number and reach of social media platforms, the cultural noise is only getting louder, making it exponentially more difficult to find reliable answers to life's largest and most meaningful questions. Stepping in to help fill this void, 'A Better Man' features first-person narratives from some of the most respected and engaging men in America today. With sincerity, humor and directness, they share their experience and advice on courage, service, anger, respect, and a host of other topics. Their stories speak to our common humanity and so have the power to impact young men and women alike, inspiring them to imagine larger possibilities as they seek to define adulthood for themselves. For example . . .Civil rights icon Andrew Young talks about what happened at the Lorraine Motel in the moments before Dr. King was shot . . . and what he learned from that event.NBA Hall of Fame Basketball player Dominique Wilkins explains why it's important to treat others with respect, do what you know is right and stand up for yourself.Four-star Admiral Leighton Smith talks about learning the lesson of responsibility (and avoiding the life of a pig farmer!).An open letter from one generation to the next, 'A Better Man' offers young people some much-needed light on the journey to becoming who they were meant to be--showing all of us another way. A better way. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
