Mark Zuckerberg famously wears the same outfit every day, so he can use the time he saves on deciding what to wear, on making crucial decisions for Facebook. Winston Churchill’s quotes are still shared by people on social media. What is it about famous people that makes us want to know every little detail about them? To associate with them through their quotes? Maybe it’s because we’re in awe of their achievements and see the way they lived their life as a road map to success.

There are some who are thrust towards greatness like Princess Diana, who used her fame to become a voice for justice, and some who snatched greatness themselves like Pelé who made football the beautiful game with his almost magical, revolutionary style of play. But in both cases, we only see them after they’ve attained success. What about their struggle outside the limelight?

Their real story often gets lost as the celebrity shines in the public eye till someone gives voice to it. Whether it’s the French street performer Philippe Petit who saw a picture of the Twin Towers in New York City and made it his mission to walk on a tight rope between the two or Alan Turing, the father of modern computer science, who built a computer to decrypt the Enigma machine, which the Nazis used to send coded messages – they have one thing is common. They all have an amazing story to tell.
