Description
"Gardner is encouraging us all to start where we are and dare to make our lives bigger and stronger, more satisfactory, and better. Chris Gardner is a knockout!"

--Maya Angelou

Chris Gardner's astonishing memoir--the phenomenal New York Times bestseller, The Pursuit of Happyness, which inspired the film of the same name starring Will Smith--served as a shining beacon of hope for countless people. In Start Where You Are, "a book that teaches you how to transform the impossible into the possible" (Sidney Poitier), Gardner offers indispensible life lessons in getting from where you are to where you want to be.
