Editorial Reviews

Review

"You're never too young, you're never too old. The book is a great road map and blue print on how to get started if you really want to do something."
—Al Roker, The Today Show

"A great book filled with great ideas! . . . The stories that follow remind us of the small ways that we can realize our power and the responsibility that each of us bears for all our actions, small and large . . . Read on to be challenged by some new things that you have (haven't?) thought of doing, and be reminded of some things that you know you should do. Rediscover the power you hold each day to change the world and change yourself. There's no reason to wait."
Positive Parenting

"It's a gift that can be given for the holidays or as a jump-start to a New Year's resolution. . . . Michelle Nunn has gathered the real-life stories of everyday citizens, celebrities and high-profile leaders who find meaning or have transformed their lives through volunteering."
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"THIS IS A BOOK THAT COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Read the stories of people who reached out to help somebody else and discovered they were their own ultimate beneficiary. It's almost magic, and It could happen to everyone. Go!"
—Jim Lehrer, Executive Editor and Anchor, PBS NewsHour

"Civic involvement is an enriching joy, as the people in this book make clear. It's also what makes America so great. Be the Change! provides practical advice and awesome tales that could change your life. This is a wonderful and inspiring book."
—Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs, Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, and Einstein: His Life and Universe

"[A] unique publication . . . a great inspiration for all to own a part in making our world a better place. . . .What better way to celebrate the holiday season than to give a gift of inspiration."
—America's Promise — The Alliance for Youth

"Civic-minded teens wanting to volunteer need look no further than this book for details on how to get involved. Chock full of examples of service projects and ideas on how to start one . . . this book is an in depth look at the benefits of volunteer work . . . Those who work with teens could use passages from this book to spark discussions about the value of service."
—VOYA-Voice of Youth Advocates

". . . a useful reminder that in a free society, the highest office is that of private citizen."
—WBRZ TV, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

"This small book is packed with brief, lively and heartfelt testimonials, to-the-point statistics, Web sites and lists, all designed to nudge you to take the first step on what Nunn calls a journey of service."
The Oregonian

"[S]tories, practical advice and inspirational snippets from people who have been able to glean something for themselves by providing service to others."
Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Format: Paperback
Living in an age with 24/7 coverage of disasters, wars and generally depressing news could easily be a recipe for national learned helplessness. I'm reading "Be the Change" and am reminded page after page, one uplifting story after another, that I'm surrounded everyday by amazing people who are keeping hope within easy reach whenever it's needed. From the household wisdom of countless community volunteers to the heart felt perspectives of iconic national leaders, it's a book that offers new ideas and fresh inspiration for getting going on them. I also love Editor Nunn's lists of books and quotes that inspire. I look forward to giving this book to my organization's management group as well as to my family for the holidays. It's an innoculation against cynicism and despair and an inspiring call to action.

I was given Be the Change! as a gift and put it next to my bed. I picked it up one night and couldn't put it down.

It is a great collection of inspiring stories, tales and practical tips about how focusing on the well being of others can change your life for the better. It immediately struck a powerful cord with me.

When I put the book down I felt like I had a game plan for my own service; and inspiration to know that I too could be the change. Bravo to the team that put this book together!

Format: Paperback
This book is an absolute must-read for anyone who has an interest in community service, or needs an inspirational push to get into the giving spirit during this holiday season. People from all walks of life share their stories and personal perspective on what it means to them to volunteer, and how their good deeds have made a positive difference - in their own lives as well as in the world around them. And, you don't have to read it from cover to cover in one sitting...pick it up each day for a daily dose of inspiration! A great gift to share with friends and loved ones.
