Terry Ann Lawler - Library Journal

Emmy Award winner Quiñones, anchor of the ABC show What Would You Do? and a correspondent for 20/20, here artfully and clearly illustrates that heroes come from all walks of life and all parts of the world, from the seven-year-old boy who watched over four younger children during Hurricane Katrina to the millionaire who walked in the sewers of Colombia to help save the lives of thousands of homeless children. Actor/narrator Arthur Morey's (The Ministry of Special Cases) calm baritone brings the stories of each of these heroes to the fore. Interspersed throughout are quizzes, biographical snippets about Quiñones's life, and inspirational celebrity quotes. Essential for all listeners. [Audio clip available through www.tantor.com.-Ed.]
