"Wise and optimistic, [Novogratz] provides a benevolent tonic for those looking to rise above the troubled waters of the age and embrace the 'beautiful struggle' of rebuilding our broken world. An inspiringly hopeful book."
“An urgent manifesto about what it means to stand with the poor, to see through clear eyes, and most of all, to do work worth doing. Jacqueline Novogratz helps each of us understand that we’re capable of so much, if we only cared enough.”
―Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of Linchpin and This is Marketing
"Everyone who wants to have an impact on the world ― from entrepreneurs, philanthropists and CEOs, to volunteers, teachers and advocates ― would be wise to keep a copy of this new book by Jacqueline Novogratz at hand. The original yet basic strategic ideas she shares in this instant classic can be the difference between just hoping for change and actually creating it. Don't listen to the naysayers ― just read this book."
―Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global
"Manifesto for a Moral Revolution is a timely, personal and focused reminder that our orientation to the work is as important as the work itself. For the many who want to do good but have not quite thought about the mindsets that will allow them to do such good, this book is necessary."
―DeRay McKesson, activist, organizer, podcaster, and author of On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope
"When we look at the world’s problems, it’s easy to be discouraged―and maybe even conclude that positive change is futile. There’s a remedy for this discouragement: Jacqueline Novogratz’s Manifesto for a Moral Revolution. Positive change isn’t just possible; it is happening all around us. Novogratz introduces the quiet warriors for a better world, and shows how each of us can be part of the moral revolution, starting today."
―Arthur C Brooks, author of Love Your Enemies, president emeritus, American Enterprise Institute & Professor of Practice, Harvard Kennedy School and Senior Fellow, Harvard Business School
"Don't let the words 'manifesto' and 'revolution' fool you; this book is all about love, humility, and patience. With gorgeous writing, arresting stories, and deep insights into complex systems, Novogratz shows the power of listening―not just to the poor but to everyone who can help you see new possibilities. In the process she offers a way to blend capitalism and social justice that will inspire people from across the political spectrum, and which is, I think, the moral revolution we most need."
―Jonathan Haidt, New York Times bestselling author of The Righteous Mind and co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind

For twenty years, Jacqueline Novogratz has been modeling a possible future. One that requires that each of us find a way to open doors for others. Because it turns out that we're far more connected than any of us expect.
In her urgent manifesto, she shares stories from a lifetime of possibility. While most of us will never dance in Kibera or slog through a 14-hour train ride to get to a small village, all of us have the chance to see what's possible and to do something about it.
This book is a series of principles, each illustrated with dozens of real-world examples. Because they work. The principles aren't easy, but they're human, important and real.
The magic of a book like this is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. The cascading possibilities, the chance to make things better by showing up with our full selves... Highly recommended.
Ms. Novogratz's elegant book uses words that have slipped from public oration: idealism, duty, dignity, beauty, morality. These words and ideas describe a powerful intellectual framework for a moral revolution now at work in places scattered around the world. There are stories about these people, devoting themselves to making the world a better place with their sweat, persistence, doubt and courage all held firm by the values of the moral revolution.
You do not need to consider yourself ready to change the world to find inspiration and profound learning in this book. All you need is the curiosity to learn the lessons of this extraordinary woman's personal growth and work over the last three decades and to then see a way to think about and accept that the world can be--and needs to be-- a better place. She provides the intellectual and moral framework each one of us can embrace to help build the future.
This book is full of stories and reflections which are necessary to social innovators, agents of change and all of us. They embrace our limitations, acknowledge our complex world and strengthen our courage to carry on.
