Synopsis

'A feel-good extravaganza, nourishing both heart and mind ... What unites the stories are the twin ideas that an advantage can sometimes be a disadvantage and that a disadvantage can sometimes be an advantage. Yet there is something more powerful and more uplifting that links them' Kate Kellaway, Financial Times

'I devoured in a single reading' Richard E. Grant

'When you read it, you feel like you can topple giants' Jon Ronson

'An energetic, counterintuitive exploration of why (and how) underdogs succeed' Lisa Appignanesi, Guardian, Books of the Year

'Breathtaking' The New York Times

'Truly intriguing and inspiring' Los Angeles Times

Penguin Books

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
