In setting out his philosophy of childcare Morozov makes complex ideas accessible through anecdotes and reminiscences. He dedicates the book to “those who consider raising children to be one of life’s highest callings and one of the highest forms of art.”
After her husband died of cancer, 57-year-old Rosie set off to run around the world, raising money in memory of the man she loved. Followed by wolves, knocked down by a bus, confronted by bears, chased by a naked man with a gun and stranded with severe frostbite, Rosie’s breathtaking 20,000-mile solo journey is as gripping as it is inspiring.
