I had the chance to talk with author Brad Meltzer before the launch of his two newest books in the I Am series - this time I Am Marie Curie and I Am Walt Disney. 

He is telling the stories of ordinary people who have changed the world.  Leaders who had lives like ours - with ups and downs, failures and successes and perseverence.  Leaders who were humble.
