The Third Door by Alex Banayan
At 18, unhappy with where his life is going and what he's studying, Alex Banayan has an idea: he wants to find out how all the people he admires got to be so successful and use it as inspiration for his own life. Realising that a book doesn't exist that offers the kind of insight he wants from his idols, he sets out to write one. The Third Door chronicles Alex's long quest to track down, meet, and interview some of the most well-known people in the world, such as Bill Gates, Lady Gaga, and Maya Angelou. This book is really something special — not because of all the celebrities that litter the pages, but because of Alex. He shares his life and his story in such an honest and at times heartbreaking way, making this a book that you will pass to every friend you know. Alex writes with such heart, honesty, and compassion that you root for him all the way through. Fans of Danny Wallace's earlier books will find a friend in The Third Door.
