Leaving Microsoft to Change the World by John Wood

April 19, 2008 at 11:31 am Leave a comment

I can’t say enough good things about this book, the author, and what his organization is doing. I was fortunate enough to hear the author, John Wood, deliver the keynote address at the Public Library Association conference last month. He is a dynamic speaker and his passion for this topic had me wanting to make a donation on the spot.

The book covers how he started Room to Read and also his entrepreneurial lessons learned from Microsoft and how he applied them to his nonprofit organization. It’s both a memoir and a good look at running a non-profit organization. It’s also quite inspiring. I highly recommend it to everyone. Please check out his organization to learn more of the important work he is doing in  developing nations to educate children.
