Welcome to episode #6 of Foreword Thinking - The Business and
Motivational Book Review Podcast presented by HarperCollins
Canada. John Wood, literally, left Microsoft to change
the world. And while it is the title of his best-selling book,
Leaving Microsoft to Change The World, it is just
one of the many components of his hugely successful not-for-profit
organization called, Room To Read. John and his volunteers are breaking
the cycle of poverty by creating libraries and schools throughout
rural and poor communities in Asia, Africa, and soon in Latin
America. It's an inspiring story that I hope will get you thinking
about what you can do to make a change in the world. I am also
looking to do a SkypeCast on the changes that have occurred in the
business world since Jim Collins released his powerful business book,
Good To Great. If you would like to be a part of that show, please
drop me a line.
