10 Hollywood Heroes to Inspire You

Famous Inspiring Role Models

Muhammad Ali

By Brad Meltzer

On the day my first son was born eight years ago, I decided to write a book—a collection of heroes throughout history that would inspire him in his own life. Some are famous and some you may never have heard of, but all of the people I write about in "Heroes For My Son" have done such wonderful things with their lives that I am happy to consider them role models for my children.

The following are 10 famous individuals I admire who are shining examples of how creativity, dedication, and perseverance can change your life.
