Many of the dozens of heroes profiled in Heroes Afar come from the sports world, but politicians, scientists, and actors also encouraged Husher, and he artfully reveals why these great men and women were such an inspiration to him and so many others. Filled with lessons on leadership and each individual's effect on history, this intriguing work is one man's tribute to some of the world's greatest heroes.
For those seeking to learn more about the past and the people who have influenced our lives, Heroes Afar is the perfect read.
