A book which should be on every teachers and educators shelf.

It is more than just a book dedicated for the book shelf, rather
than an encouragent to evaluate privatly owned current business
models, and community owned social businesses and enterprises.

I found this book, analytical, well researched and a guide
of things to come....

Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank, a microcredit lender, won the Nobel Peace Prize for his contributions to fighting world poverty. Although the government of Bangladesh eventually forced him to leave the bank (possibly for political reasons), his views still convey great force. Yunus espouses an economy that embraces humanity as a pool of positive potential. His book, written with Karl Weber, lays out a blueprint for "social business." It details compelling case studies of how various Grameen enterprises handle everyday market problems. getAbstract recommends it to executives who want to enfranchise good works, and to garage-office entrepreneurs and public policy technocrats who believe in a world with less poverty, but who need a little guidance to get there.

This is a fascinating book from a dedicated individual. It details his start in the microfinance industry and how that grew into the group that it is today. He highlights some of the social enterprises that Grameen have supported and where the pros and cons lie. Easy to read and always to the point, well worth reading for anyone interested in development or alternative models for finance.

This is an excellent book compact with all necessary information and inspirations for one to set up a social business. Once you read it, you will know that it is possible to start a social business and there are many support available for you as long as you have a greater passion and dedication towards making the world a better and sustainable place.

I admire Yunus and his works. We have to wait and see whether the ideas he put in this book gonna work or not but its definitely worth giving a try because everything else is failing!!. This book will inspire everyone who is involved in fighting poverty.

This book should be read by budding entrepreneurs whose aim is not only to make money, but help this failing humanity.
