About this product
- DescriptionHow do our hopes and dreams help define who we are? What qualities must a person have to overcome obstacles in life? What kind of courage does it take to live in an uncertain world? Drawing on the political and geographic history of Iran before the 1979 Revolution, Kian Parsi's true story is about survival amidst hardship, a need to adapt to harsh circumstances, matter how difficult they may be, and the need to appreciate life and the importance of taking risks. Reading about Parsi's memorable moments, dangerous destinies, and unique experiences clearly describes the rewards and difficulties associated with life challenges. Without experiences, he would remain the same person throughout his life - never changing, never growing. There are critical moments in everyone's life when everything seems mysterious, characterized by darkness and confusion. Living through these challenges can lead to significant turning points and moments of discovery. The unexpected events provide examples that show how hardship will ultimately shape t only your life, but your character, even in an environment where injustice and corruption is part of the culture. An empowering story that floats you on words to ather world, where Parsi's experiences bring joy and sadness, thrills and inspiration.
