I Dare You!
American entrepreneur and philanthropist WILLIAM H. DANFORTH (1870-1956) is most famous for founding the Ralston Purina Company, but he also helped launch the American Youth Foundation in 1925 as a resource for spurring kids to becoming the best they can be. The spirit of his can-do philosophy is encapsulated here, in this cheerful and inspiring guide to being a creative, adventurous, magnetic, successful, daring person at any age. For decades, I Dare You!-with its honest, heartfelt advice and entertaining and enlightening anecdotes-has encouraged and motivated children and adults alike to take control of their lives and become the happy, fulfilled people they've always dreamed of being. As relevant and necessary today as it was when it was first published more than 70 years ago, this is a book to treasure and to share.
