Brief summary of the book:

Stories For Boys Who Dare To Be Different is a book about men from many generations who dared to step outside the box and change the world in many different ways. It was written in 2018.

Stories For Boy Who Dare To Be Different has 100, page-long stories about boys of all ages and the amazing stuff they did in their lives. All of the stories in this book are interesting - some are sad and some of them are happy - but they are all inspirational. Let me tell you the story of one of my favourite people written about in the book, Jamie Oliver. You have probably already heard of him, he is a famous cook who is known for making healthy food easier to make and much more delicious.

Jamie Oliver was born in England in 1975. He started cooking in his parent's pub when he was 8 years old. All his work colleagues were amazed by his skill and how he could make simple ingredients into delicious dishes. When he was 16 he left school to go to a technical college to study food and nutrition. After that, he got a job at a restaurant called the River Cafe. When a TV producer met him, he offered him a job working on his own cooking show. Another thing that Jamie was passionate about was sharing the message that food in school canteens didn't have to be unhealthy or boring. Due to his efforts, schools around Britain have been serving healthier and more yummy food. All Jamie wants is for everybody to have access to good, nutritious food.
