Miracle in the Andes

There's nothing better than a good story, and when it's a true, almost unbelievable story of human courage, that's something special.

Nando Parrado, was one of the few members of the 1972 Uruguay rugby team that survived a plane crash in the Andes Mountains. Parrado told me in stark terms about how he was willing to do anything it took to survive, even something most people would find unthinkable. I was completely blown away by this interview, and the book is great.
