Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different


‘This book can save lives. This book can change lives. This book can help to bring forth another generation of boys who dare to be different.’ - Benjamin Zephaniah

Prince charming, dragon slayer, mischievous prankster… more often than not, these are the role-models boys encounter in the books they read at home and at school.

Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different offers a welcome alternative narrative. From Salvador Dali to Barack Obama, welcome to an extraordinary compilation of 100 stories of famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day.

All saw, and dealt with the world differently. All are rule-breakers and innovators; all have achieved amazing things. For those who need the courage to reject peer pressure and go against the grain, this book seeks to inspire. The must-have book for all those boys who worry about stuff and all those parents who worry about their boys who worry about stuff.
