Dan Walker has written the stories of remarkable people

It adds: "In the course of his professional life, Dan has encountered a stream of remarkable people with intriguing and uplifting stories that should be told. In Remarkable People, he engagingly recounts these wonderful and heart-warming stories.

"He explores a host of themes such as deprivation, inequality, loneliness and mental health, in the process highlighting and celebrating significant pockets of truly heartening altruism, benevolence and self-sacrifice, typified by a deep concern for others and a million random acts of kindness."

Dan also revealed in the comment section of his post that a portion of the proceeds from sales of the book would go to a charity or cause related to the stories in the book.
