This review is from: My Heroes: Extraordinary Courage, Exceptional People (Hardcover)
Ranulph Fiennes - is a big hero of mine. He has accomplished some incredible feats (regardless of whether or not this has been from a position of privilege). However, reading this book you get to understand that real heroism is much more understated. It is much less glamorous and often from a position of necessity. In this book is a series of true short stories and thought pieces about heroes from mainly modern history. Mainly people whose heroism has been driven from a social or politically necessary position. It makes you think, that if needed, could you be a real hero?
