From The National Center for Family Literacy

"Chief National Correspondent for CBS News and regular contributor to "60 Minutes," Byron Pitts, is taking his powerful message of overcoming illiteracy to the internet.

He is featured on a Better World Books' podcast to discuss his new book, Step Out on Nothing: How Faith and Family Helped Me Conquer Life's Challenges."

The book chronicles his rise to fame after overcoming illiteracy and a stuttering problem with the support of his mother, a college roommate and educators.

Better World Books also is supporting the effort by donating 100% of net profits for Byron's book when it is purchased at www.betterworldbooks.com/Step-Out-on-Nothing-id-0312577664.aspx."
