This review is from: Creating a World Without Poverty: How Social Business Can Transform Our Lives: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism (Hardcover)
This is an extremely inspirational book for anyone with a social conscience. It is not just a visionary theory, this is a priciple which is already changing the lives of literally millions of people. This is a system which works. The story which Muhammed Yunis tells of how he has put his knowledge and ideas to use to such amazing effect, is a challenge to all of us to use our God-given talents to change the lives of others rather than finding more and more creative ways to fill our own pockets and spoil ourselves.
The style of the book is positive and hopeful throughout, even when he describes aspects of the business which have not worked out, or which could have been done better.
For anyone who has read the previous book - "Banker To The Poor" you may be a little disapointed that this book, repeats a lot of the content of that book, but it helps to set the context here. There is also very little detail of how the Grameen model of busines works, so you come away wanting to find out more and buzzing with ideas of how it could be applied in other places.
All in all, a highly recommended read.
