Pushing The Boundaries! How To Get More Out Of Make Life features profiles of 32 people from around the world (many of whom are well known, and featuring many Canadians) who reveal how they triumph in life. We’re talking people who have overcome uneasiness about taking risks, like daredevil Nik Wallenda; doctor-of-change, Patch Adams; intersex supermodel, Hanne Gaby Odielle; international clothing designer, Tommy Hilfiger. Also included are Canadians like Marina Nemat, who defied certain execution in her teens at Evin prison in Tehran; McDonald’s of Canada Chair, George Cohon, who persevered through 14 years to break into the Russian market; Rick Hansen, who pushed himself around the world in a wheelchair to raise awareness of people with disabilities; Katie Taylor who’s broken the glass ceiling by becoming the first female Chair of a major Canadian Bank; Donald Ziraldo, who put Inniskillin Winery on ┬áthe map by making Icewine into an immensely popular beverage worldwide; etc. As Jack Canfield, renowned co-author of the Chicken Soup For The Soul┬« series says in the book’s Foreword, “Having the conviction to reach beyond your fears and take chances means you’re ready to achieve lasting success.”
