'Pat Williams reminds us that reading can transform our lives. But for that to happen we have to turn off the TV and pick up the book. Books give us information, remind us we're human, and above all challenge our imagination. Pat Williams encourages people not to take this gift for granted.'
-- Senator Bill Bradley
"Pat Williams does an extraordinary job illustrating the social and educational benefits of reading."
--David Stern , Commissioner of the National Basketball Association
