Inspiring Stories From the Life of Louis Armstrong to Help You Lead a More Wonderful Life
LOUIS ARMSTRONG: jazz genius, crossover media superstar, still one of the most recognized faces on the planet, and named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. Louis literally rose from rags to riches, from abject poverty to dining with royalty and having a recording placed in a NASA spacecraft leaving the solar system. More important than his achievements, however, is how Louis lived: joyfully, lovingly, constructively, leaving the world a better place.

With illustrations from behavioral science and success research, each chapter also includes a page of suggested practices for personal growth, plus recommended songs to enjoy on the companion website.
