Sinopsis

You won't find any stories of slaying dragons or saving princesses here. In Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different, author Ben Brooks-with the help of Quinton Wintor's striking full-color illustrations-offers a welcome alternative narrative: one that celebrates introverts and innovators, sensitivity and resilience, individuality and expression.
It's an accessible compilation of 75 famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and stereotype-smasher in his own way. Entries include Frank Ocean, Salvador Dali, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei, Jesse Owens, and so many more-heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.

    El arrepentimiento suele llegar tarde, y eso cuando llega. Pero no sabemos si los jóvenes cuyas tribulaciones se cuentan aquí son realmente insensatos, egoístas, crueles, retorcidos, incapaces de sentir empatía y arrepentimiento, o solo se esmeran por parecerlo. A veces, entre las clases y los exámenes, las visitas al psicólogo, las muchas drogas y el poco o mal sexo, incluso p...
