By Maria Di Lorenzo
Athletic, handsome, and always good for a laugh, Pier Giorgio Frassati was the charismatic leader of a band of rowdy friends. He smoked, pulled pranks, relished extreme sports, fiercely debated politics into the night, and secretly gave away his wealth to help the poor: a mother unexpectedly widowed, a homeless invalid, a boy without warm clothes. Then plunged eagerly into intense experiences of Eucharistic prayer.
An inspiring biography that captures Frassati's spirit, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati: An Ordinary Christian explores the adventuresome personality and forthright love of a man who succeeded in wresting holiness from everyday life.

This is the best book that I've read on Pier Giorgio; it was very detailed; an enjoyable read and what an inspiring life! I would recommended it to all Catholics, young or old. It shows you what life is really all about.
