The World is Just a Book Away is an anthology edited by USC professor James Owens that captures the stories of how books and reading inspired some of the world's most prominent people.
Recognizing the life-changing nature of reading, Owens set out in 2002 to create this deeply moving book. At first glance, the sixty contributors to this anthology may not seem to have much in common yet they all share their personal love of books and reading.
The book takes readers on a journey through personal stories from five Nobel Peace Prize laureates, actors, royalty, world leaders, scientists, humanitarians, and many more. James J. Owens is a professor of management communication at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business.
