Format: Paperback
This book is inspirational! It documents the lives of twelve outstanding leaders in the nonprofit sector and shows the reader that boldness is in all of us. I found it to be a satisfying read that motivated me to examine myself and realize that I have the potential to create social change.

I would recommend this as a career guide to anyone interested in the non profit sector, human rights or social justice issues.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nedra Weinreich on April 2, 2008
Format: Paperback
The social entrepreneurship organization Echoing Green has just published a book designed to inspire young people to consider careers in the nonprofit sector. The book, Be Bold, tells the stories of 12 nonprofit leaders who typify the core elements of being bold: experiencing a moment of obligation (committing to what you feel is important), having the gall to think big, trying new and untested approaches to solving problems, and seeing possibilities where others may not. The book has a useful set of worksheets that can help you figure out what being bold means to you, and how to put it into action.
