|display_description||From the incredibly impressive and inspiring teenager who unified the fundraising efforts of children across the USA, reporting more than $10 million (yes, MILLION) for the survivors of Hurricane Katrina at the age of ten, comes the ultimate, and most unexpected, guide for everyone who dreams of making a difference. Talia Leman's heroic efforts on behalf of the survivors of Hurricane Katrina ranked in the top five of the relief fundraisers, including major international organizations. After completing that incredible project, she continued with something even bigger: orchestrating and leveraging the philanthropic efforts of millions of children from twenty countries to bring aid to four continents, so far. And she did all of this before turning sixteen. Now this dynamo, who has made appearances on the Today show, NBC Nightly News and CNN's American Morning, offers the sort of inspirational guide that only she could write. Poised, smart, charming, and always positive, Talia has brought young people together to focus their energy and passion to such projects as providing clean, safe water sources in the developing world, supplying corrective braces to children with clubfoot across the planet, and funding green solutions in schools throughout the United States. Writing with infectious enthusiasm, humor, and resoluteness, she shares her secrets to success-as well as her catchy maxims, like: Use Your Inexperience Shamelessly, Sideways is a Better Way to Go Forward, and Too Many Cooks is the Right Number. Talia proves that any one has what it takes to do exactly what she did-kids and adults alike. A random book about the power of anyone is set to electrify a generation of achievers.|
