"Life Is So Good : One Man's Extraordinary Journey Through the 20th Century and How he Learned to Read at Age 98" - George Dawson and Richard Glaubman
The 103-year-old grandson of a slave, George Dawson learned to read at age ninety-eight. In this autobiography, he reflects on his life and offers valuable lessons in living and a fresh, firsthand view of America during the twentieth century. First published in 2000 by Random House then picked up by Penguin Books, Life is So Good is about character, soul, and spirit.
Richard Glaubman (George’s friend and writer) captures Dawson’s irresistible voice and view of the world, offering insights into humanity, history, hardships, and ultimately happiness. From segregation and civil rights to the wars and the presidents to defining moments in history, George Dawson’s description and assessment of the last century inspires readers with the message that—through it all—has sustained him: “Life is so good. I do believe it’s getting better.”
The Christian Science Monitor called this “the feel good story of the year.” In 2011, it captured the prestigious Christopher Award presented to the producers, directors, and writers of books, motion pictures, and television specials that "affirm the highest values of
the human spirit."
