Summary

Heroes come from all walks of life. From actors to athletes to filmmakers, these role models stand out not only for their physical and mental abilities, but for their strength of character as well. Creative Education applauds these leaders with standing Ovations.

Stunning photographs, an eye-catching design, well-researched text, and spirited quotes bring to life 12 of the world's most talented and compelling people. No matter what their endeavor, whether it's directing or starring in a hit motion picture, competing for hockey's Stanley Cup, or supporting legislation to help catch child abusers, readers will discover the rewards of discipline and strength of spirit. A look at the lives of Ovations' featured figures show how perseverance and goal-setting can make a person's dreams become reality.
