How to Change the World
David Bornstein's "How to Change the World" is the first book to study a remarkable and growing group of individuals around the world - what Bornstein calls social entrepreneurs. these men and women are bringing innovative, and successful, grass roots approaches to a wide variety of social and economic problems, from rural poverty in india to discrimination against gypsies in Central Europe; from industrial pollution in the United States to child prostitution in Thailand. Like business entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs are creative, driven, and adventurous. they embrace change, exploit new opportunities, and think big. Bornstein provides vivid profiles of many such individuals.
