One of the ten best self-help books of all time — The Christian Science Monitor "You can be a bigger person than you are," promises William H. Danforth, "and I am going to prove it to you." The founder of the Ralston Purina company, Danforth envisioned life as a checkerboard and developed a four-square philosophy, in which individuals must balance mental, physical, social, and religious needs to achieve a fulfilling, successful life. In this slim motivational volume, he offers you an irresistible challenge to fulfill your potential by taking risks. I Dare You! is geared toward young adults but resonates with all ages. Danforth's "dares" promote a willingness to seize opportunities and strive harder, while developing a sense of adventure and a growing number of accomplishments. The author discusses the cultivation of strength, creativity, and character, and he encourages continuous learning and improvement. I Dare You! has served as an inspiration to generations of readers who took Danforth's words to heart, bettering themselves and sharing the fruits of their success with others.
