Book Description Report this book

We All Need Heroes is the quite astonishing result of author Simon Zingerman's last project as a university student. As his thesis he compiled his favorite inspirational stories that he'd been gathering for almost three years and turned them into a book. Packed with 120 short-stories from all around the world, and from many different decades, We All Need Heroes celebrates people with brave and innovative ideas. Simon believes that the stories will convert the skeptical into believers, make heroes out of cowards and turn dull entrepreneurs and directors into trendsetters! Learn the importance of making enemies, why one should not strive to win awards and how you can practice to be in the right place at the right time. Read about impressive guerrilla marketing campaigns and stupid...

Simon Zingerman

- By Elin Hermanson (kulturellan.com) Are your ideas stupid? Unreasonable? Or maybe just non-existing? If that is the case, We All Need Heroes is a book for you. Simon Zingerman, with his fantastic collection of anecdotes about the believable, unbelievable and always winning ideas, inspires even the most uninspired couch potato to get up and DO SOMETHING! If your creativity is on a standstill, or if you're just stuck in a project, small or big, this book can be the key to you getting back in business. With these stories you get the feeling that everyone can succeed, if it's about getting a prosperous career, earning a fortune in an innovative way, or just become an emotionally richer individual. You can read about clever solutions to big problems, intelligent inventions or accomplished marketing. Or about people who never give up despite hopeless failures, but whose dreams eventually come true because of stubbornness and a never-ending storage of optimism. This is a great feel-good book that you can either gorge all in one go for more than a mouthful of motivation, or pick up every now and then for a sporadic reliance when hope is slipping away. If anything, it's a lightsome collection of both heart-warming and brain-tickling tales that everyone should take part of.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Simon Zingerman

Simon Zingerman is a newly graduated graphic design student from Stockholm, Sweden. His first book We All Need Heroes is the quite astonishing result of his thesis for his last year studying Media Design at Luleå University of Technology. As school finished Simon started up his own business Skyborn Works, with strong intention to finish and self-publish the book as his very first professional project. Although he spent many months writing this book Simon chooses not to label himself as an author. In his own words: "I'm simply a young and hungry entrepreneur retelling stories in a fun and exciting way, hoping that the result of my hard work in putting it all together will convert the skeptical into believers, make heroes out of cowards and turn dull entrepreneurs and directors into trendsetters". Simon is a graphic designer at heart and writing and designing this book has been a great learning process for him. Follow the unstoppable creative force at: skybornworks.com.
