About this deal

Dan Walker is back, determined to keep shining a light on the kindness, compassion and selflessness which continue to characterise so many people and their actions right across the country. As well as background insight alongside the dialogue, there are also humorous insights from behind the scenes, particularly from the Strictly dance chapters, where he was a celebrity contestant. The new book from the author of the bestselling Remarkable People contains a totally fresh batch of humble heroes whose actions, bravery and determination have helped shape their communities. Some (not all) of the stories are tragic and just so saddening but overall these are stories of optimism and hope and are uplifting and inspiring and show amazing strength of character. With a foreword by 2021 Strictly Come Dancing winner Rose Ayling-Ellis, and including chapters on Rose and her mum, the 3 Dads Walking, Martin Hibbert, Paul and Nick Harvey, the heroes of Fishmongers' Hall, and Jimi Olubunmi-Adewole.

All are truly inspirational in either overcoming obstacles to make a success of their life or finding a way to deal with their grief which benefits others. A beautiful and inspirational read full of stories of ordinary people who have done remarkable things, making them very much more than ordinary. As one of the UK’s leading journalists, Dan has made it his life work to focus on people who often act as the catalysts for change: the unheralded champions who frequently go without getting the recognition they deserve. p>Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice.The new audiobook from the author of the bestselling Remarkable People contains a totally fresh batch of humble heroes whose actions, bravery and determination have helped shape their communities.
