All of the book’s stories are selections from Inspiring Youth Stories, an impassioned column for young people, published by China Youth Net (www.youth.cn). The column is also the first-prize winner of China News Award, the top prize for China’s annual excellent news work. In the book, twenty young people from different walks of life embody the credo: 'Hard work imbues youth with excellence, distinction and inspiration.' Most of these young people were selected as role models online by ordinary Chinese youth. Through these stories you can get a strong sense of the desires and values of China’s young people today.
