Full Product Description

If you had breath for no more than 99 words, what would they be?

Liz Gray asked this interesting question to 99 people who she admired. Prier to a serious injury, Liz Gray was a successful film-maker. The unfortunate accident left her unable to speak, write or read for more than a few minutes at a time.

Left with nothing but her sight, she was forced to re-assess her life and her world. She decided to take a leap of faith and got in touch with people she wanted to hear answer her question. To her amazement the daring request received a huge volume of replies, from: poets and musicians, politicians and scientists, people working for peace, for spiritual understanding and for health.

Their answers proved to be a revelation - every word is precious.

Here is a short list of people to take up Liz s challenge:
- Nelson Mandela,
- Yoko Ono,
- Desmond Tutu,
- Diana Athill,
- Camila Batmanghelidjh,
- William Dalrymple,
- Wendy Cope,
- Ariel Dorfman,
- Maureen Freely,
- Maggie Gee,

- Steve Jones,
- Fergal Keane,
- Salif Keita,
- Ursula Le Guin,
