This is a new capitalism movement that work! This book will inspire you and show you there is hope in the world of business.
What a refreshingly honest look at the wonderful potential of business to do good in the world. A must read for both business people and non-business people as well. Perhaps even more so for those who tend to criticize business for everything that is wrong with the world - a group I used to be part of, but thanks to this book am no more.
