The Ateneo de Manila University will launch a new book entitled "To Give and
Not to Count the Cost: Ateneans inspiring Ateneans, 1859-2009" on November
30, Tuesday, 5-7:30pm at the auditorium of Ricardo & Dr. Rosita Leong Hall.


"To Give and Not to Count the Cost" showcases a collection of 150 essays

President Teofisto Guingona, Bishop Mylo Guevarra, former Central Bank
governor Roberto Paterno, educator Patricia Licuanan, Lisa Gokongwei, Justo
Ortiz, Jay Aldeguer, Meneleo Carlos Jr., Ernesto Tanmantiong, Floy Quintos
and Rene Meily to name a few. 


In this book, the 150 authors give their own ideas of what constitutes
heroism through an essay about an Atenean who inspired them, influenced
them, or became a personal hero. All the authors were given the freedom to
choose who to write about hence the book offers a wide range of subjects
from Jose Rizal and Juna Luna, to writers, teachers, laboratory machinist,
