I think teens or adults could get so much inspiration from this graphic novel. Gavin Aung Than was an office worker who used to doodle. He ventured out to a new world with his Zen Pencils website which was a huge success.
Famous quotes from world leaders like the Dalai Llama, Nelson Mandela, Chris Hadfield and many others are all illustrated beautifully by Than.
This would be a great gift for a high school or university graduate!

This is well cool.
I don't agree with every quote in here, but neither do I think that's the point of a book like this.
The artist is skilled, and each quote takes a few pages to unfold.
Clever stuff, and worth the looksee.

These comics will not likely change your life, but they can and hopefully will give you hope and strength, help you smile and persevere, help you stand tall under the monsoon and be humble before praise. These are my Chicken Soup for the Soul, and I greatly appreciate them, even if I understand that they are not breaking new ground.
