Popular TV presenter Dan Walker is back, determined to keep shining a light on the kindness, compassion and selflessness which continue to characterise so many people and their actions right across the country. 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 the unheralded champions who frequently go without getting the recognition they deserve.

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. 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. As well as background insight alongside the dialogue, there are also humorous insights from behind the scenes, particularly from the Strictly dance chapters, where he was a celebrity contestant.

So many of the stories are extremely moving, and most will probably be familiar from the media/news. The new book from the author of the bestselling Remarkable People contains a totally fresh batch of humble heroes whose actions, bravery and determination have helped shape their communities.

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. Some (not all) of the stories are tragic and just so saddening but overall these are stories of optimism and hope and are uplifting and inspiring and show amazing strength of character. The subject of forgiveness in the face of such awful atrocity has its own chapter with Dan talking to people about their religious beliefs and why they have chosen to forgive rather than live a life of bitterness and hate.p>Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice.
