About the episode

On this episode of Book Wise, our host Britt Brewer A.K.A. “Dr. Books” takes a caller from the request line in search of an aspirational, hardscrabble, up-from-the-boot-straps type of book.

Dr. Books’ ultimate suggestion is “Educated” by Tara Westover. But the good doctor pairs her final pick with some outstanding, aspirational memoir genre-type runner-ups.

So, if you’re a reader who’s heart swells when reading about the triumph of the human spirit, then this episode of Book Wise is most definitely for you!
