Just this week a young man returned this book to the library. When he handed it too me, I clutched the book to my chest and said, "oh, this book is so good, so powerful." The young man, who isn't a big reader, looked me right in the eyes and said, "This book is a life-changer. I am a different person now that I have read this book." I kid you not, he really said that. A high school boy said that a book changed his life. And not just any book, but The Power of One, which isn't just a good book, but it is a "clutch-it-to-your-chest" good book. A book that speaks to power that we each have within us.
Trust me on this one. If you haven't read it, do! If you are a high school or public librarian and you don't have this book in your collection, get it. It won't fly off the shelf. But every year or so someone will discover it and it will be a life-changer for them. It is worth the expense, I promise.
