The King Years

THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
The Smartest Kids in the World

—Joel Klein, CEO, Amplify, and former chancellor, New York Department of Education
“40 Chances should be a primer for all our citizens on how one man has the passion to save the world, and how we can all follow his lead in our own way.”

Writing Is My Drink
“Nimbly traversing such daunting obstacles as writer’s block and candidly admitting to warts-and-all failures, Nestor ends each chapter with writer’s workshop exercises designed to both inspire and enhance one’s writing skills.”
“Noble Savages is an epic—not only of one of the most extraordinary physical and intellectual adventures ever experienced by a major scientist, but also the history of one of the most significant events in the early, often turbulent meeting between evolutionary biology and the social sciences.”
—E. O. Wilson, Pellegrino University Professor Emeritus, Harvard University, and the author of The Social Conquest of Earth and Sociobiology
Walk in Their Shoes
“This is a heartfelt and brave account of gulfs being bridged, distances erased, and offers the hope that the illusion that we are separate can be obliterated. Both buildOn and its founder have helped us inch closer to dismantling the barriers that exclude.”
—Gregory Boyle, author of Tattoos on the Heart
