Sample Book Insights:
#1 My parents were very strict about their children's grades, but they were also very supportive of their children's interests and dreams. They raised us to be compassionate towards others, and we benefited from that.
#2 I had a rapid onset of scoliosis when I was twelve. My parents waited anxiously while the doctors operated on me, fixing my spine by extracting bone from my hip and fusing the eleven curved vertebrae together. I was told that my competitive sports career was over.
#3 I had grand ambitions that fell far outside my father’s pragmatism. I was obsessed with success, and I was driven by an innate ambition. But I also needed to prove my worth.
#4 I retired from skiing, and I fell in love with the uncertainty of being in a foreign place. I made friends with some Gypsy kids in Greece. Their parents had been rounded up and shipped back to Serbia, but they were still able to travel freely.
