Synopsis

“Gardner is encouraging us all to start where we are and dare to make our lives bigger and stronger, more satisfactory, and better. Chris Gardner is a knockout!”

—Maya Angelou

 

 Chris Gardner’s astonishing memoir—the phenomenal New York Times bestseller, The Pursuit of Happyness, which inspired the film of the same name starring Will Smith—served as a shining beacon of hope for countless people. In Start Where You Are, “a book that teaches you how to transform the impossible into the possible” (Sidney Poitier), Gardner offers indispensible life lessons in getting from where you are to where you want to be.

It has always been that way so why “beat against the goad,” or “No one else in this family has ever gone to college, so I probably couldn’t make it either.” Gardner would say that’s plain BS so if you’ve stepped in it, leave your shoe there, pull your foot out, and move on.
