Want to change the world...?
When John Wood took time off from his stressful job at Microsoft to go trekking in Nepal, he had no way of knowing what an impact that vacation would utlimately have for 1000s of children across Asia. Following his time in Nepal, John launched the nonprofit organization Room to Read (www.roomtoread.org) which has created more than 2,000 schools and libraries for children across Asia. Leaving Microsoft to Change the World is a captivating memoir, an inspiring read, and offers practical insight into managing a global nonprofit. Don't miss it. -Morrigan
