The later chapters on forgiveness are an excellent opportunity for Dan to open up about his own faith and share how the root of Christianity is the need for forgiveness for sins. AN EXTRAORDINARY BOOK' NIHAL ARTHANAYAKE'SUCH AN INCREDIBLE READ' ZOE BALL'ONE OF THE YEAR'S MOST INSPIRING BOOKS' HOLLY WILLOUGHBYWith a foreword by 2021 Strictly Come Dancing winner Rose Ayling-Ellis, and including chapters on Rose and her mum, the 3 Dads Walking, Martin Hibbert, Paul and Nick Harvey, the heroes of Fishmongers' Hall, and Jimi Olubunmi-Adewole. With a foreword by 2021 Strictly Come Dancing winner Rose Ayling-Ellis, and including chapters on Rose and her mum, the 3 Dads Walking, Martin Hibbert, Paul and Nick Harvey, the heroes of Fishmongers' Hall, and Jimi Olubunmi-Adewole. So many of the stories are extremely moving, and most will probably be familiar from the media/news.

As one of the UK’s leading journalists, Dan has made it his life work to focus on people who often act as the catalysts for change: the unheralded champions who frequently go without getting the recognition they deserve. History can be cruel and forgetful to those who don’t shout about their own success or good deeds, but Standing on the Shoulders is a beautifully-written and illuminating celebration of ordinary people and the extraordinary things they do. A beautiful and inspirational read full of stories of ordinary people who have done remarkable things, making them very much more than ordinary.

Dan does revisit a few people mentioned in the first book with an update on their lives since he last spoke to them and how they are progressing either personally with a particular cause.
