Rebel with a cause; New Zealander of the year
By: Ray Avery
Location: 920 AVE (New Zealand section)
Rebel with a cause is the inspiring story of a true Kiwi hero who overcame childhood neglect and abuse to become a successful scientist and businessman, and who has saved millions of lives in the third world. He was the new Zealander of the year in 2010. This book is fascinating, deeply moving, and at times very funny. Above all, it's an engaging read about how one man truly can change the world.
"Ray Avery is a remarkable individual who overcame the odds to become an inspiration to all new Zealanders. This is a man who believed in himself and rose above his circumstances to attain excellence" John Key.
