5.0 out of 5 stars Pages keep turning..... May 18, 2010
I am only a few pages into the book but I love it already! I am very excited to see how I can apply it in my life and work. The accessibility of this book's writing style brings a VERY valuable concept and opportunity to audiences who may not traditionally be exposed to the concepts contained in its pages. Well done!

I am looking forward to continuing my read and journey into social entrepreneurship!
