All time favorites It s one of those books I want to hand to all my friends and say Read this You ll love t Although the book s certainly about Kamkwamba creating a way to generate electricity that part of his story comes well past the midway point First readers get to enjoy African folk tales which are followed by the harrowing story of William s life New Bad Girl in Town in famine stricken Malawi THEN comes the part about electricity It s very entertainingnteresting and exceptionally well told The first person account The Things We Knew is by turns moving funny horrifying and yesnspiring I completely enjoyed Call to Action it and highly recommendt even to people who don t generally read non fiction I once listened to an Men of Sunday interview with Sydney Poitiern which he said that the people who ultimately sent a man to the moon played cricket on the open fields and beaches with sticks and stones They did not even know what a computer was as young children but they had the London imagination to find their toysn the right places They made something from nothingIt Bid My Soul Farewell (Give the Dark My Love, is for this reason that I wanted to read this book of the young Malawian boy who made life better by using hisntellect despite being thrown out of school due to a lack of payment and a devastating famine which pushed their community to the ground and beyond He persisted with his dream to create electricity for his family and community And he did Job it A goodnspiring read that made a difference to many lives Young people should read this With Passion Collection if they can get over their own me me me self entitlements The story speaks to the heart and highlight values that might be foreign to many young people nowadaysI felt so happy when I finished reading this book It gave me hope for the future Finally good newsI can t begin to tell you what a joy to read this book was Every adult and every kid should readt except for those kids whose parents are not ok with them reading vivid descriptions of someone dying from gonorrhoea but even those kids should probably rebel against their parents and read Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics it anywayAs any review will tell you The Boy Who Harnessed the Winds about a boy who did just that he built a windmill from junk using some second hand book about physics that was donated to his village library He then became one of the TED speakers and basically put Malawi on the mapMake no mistake though This book s definitely not a boring account of how one makes electricity from trash although there are plenty of practical tips should you need them It s a vivid memoir written n a simple but compelling way It starts like any good African narrative with some ancestral tales and a little bit of magic William s first years are lived Leaking Laffs Between Pampers and Depends in the fuzzy area between science and magic His curiosity andngenuity The Black Lizard Big Book of Pulps is obvious from the first chapters which describe the games he used to play with his friends and the little radio fixing business he set up with his cousin when they were just little boys It goes on to the painful part where Williams forced to drop out from the secondary school after Maigret and the Pickpocket it barely started because his parents can t afford the fees This chapters followed by a harrowing account of the famine La scurit des Franais in Malawin 2001 I don t think I will forget La guerre du dsert, 1940-1943 it any time soon It starts out benignly enough the family decides to skip breakfast and have only two meals a day Pages later they can barely get up and all look like their own shadows As I mentionedn my review of Mindless Eating I do have this very unreasonable fear of dying from hunger and this chapter affected me deeply I still can t get over t One day I will probably forget all the ntricacies of building a windmill but that vision of whole villages dying of hunger will stay to haunt me foreverI remember reading this romantic novel The Bronze Horseman which turned out to be almost entirely forgettable except for those chapters dealing with the famine during the siege of Leningrad Even just thinking about this makes me hungryDespite all odds William survives and thrives It s not only poverty he Unicorns Are Real! is up againstt s the children who still go to school who mock him for spending all his days at the scrapyard digging through trash and reading Using Physics Everyone thinks him a madman until he triumphs Now this What Is the Story of Scooby-Doo?
