Amazing People in Action

Albert Einstein said that we should Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

Amazing People Worldwide holds the key to understanding how and why the world’s most influential and effective individuals did what they did. It is home to a unique digital story library about amazing and inspirational people who shaped our world including Walt Disney, Aristotle, Marie Curie, Galileo, Queen Victoria, Confucius, Helen Keller and Elvis Presley.

These biographical interviews, known as BioViews®, are written in the first person and give a very personal perspective on what motivated and influenced amazing people. They have been developed and created by psychologist and business leader Dr Charles Margerison, who is supported by his dedicated editorial team. Each BioView® is meticulously researched and based on historical facts.


“We can all learn how to improve our own performance from the achievements of amazing people”
Dr Charles Margerison

Life Writing

As part of his work, Dr Margerison focuses on developing ways and means for teachers to help students write about planning their life, in terms of their interests, passions and principles. This will be achieved by encouraging life writing for students in writing their life forward, in terms of their ideas and how to convert them into sound decisions and applications.

Our mission is to inspire people around the world by helping them better understand how to be amazing. We work with a range of global partners on the distribution of our titles.
