Inspiration? Check. Finding the right book can unexpectedly change the course of your life by providing a dream and a road map for achieving it.
Courage? Check.Mastering skills that could mean the difference between life and death as a fighter pilot, test pilot, and astronaut takes bravery.

Scott Kelly believes, "If you can dream it, you can do it."
