This slim volume is a series of paragraphs? Essays? I am not quite sure what but they are taken from a documentary that National Geographic made on Dr. Fauci that was released in September of 2021. Dr. Fauci had no creative input or control over this book.
There are ten chapters with titles that offer what you will find in the pages following such as: Above All Empathize, Pursue Your Passion, Live to Serve, Be a Lifelong Learner and so on. As you would expect they all offer advice pursuant to the specific topic. It’s the type of book you keep handy for when you need a bit of a personal pep talk or a hit of encouragement as you head into your day.
This would be a great gift for anyone who is a fan of Dr. Fauci or a friend who needs a bit of encouragement for whatever reason.
