Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati - Maria di Lorenzo
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 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.
