In his New York Times bestseller, Wes Moore—a youth advo­cate, busi­ness leader, and author—tells the fascinating story of "the other Wes Moore" – a man who shared his name and a similar personal history but arrived at a starkly different fate. The Other Wes Moore is the story of two kids with the same name, both liv­ing in Baltimore City. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, dec­o­rated com­bat vet­eran, White House Fel­low and busi­ness leader. The other is serv­ing a life sen­tence in prison for felony mur­der.

Compelled by their similar upbringings, Moore wrote The Other Wes Moore to discover how small choices make big differences.

Moore has been fea­tured by such media out­lets as Peo­ple mag­a­zine, The New York Times, The Wash­ing­ton Post, Time magazine, CSPAN and MSNBC.
