    A must-read for anyone who wants to change the world

    Professor Yunus brings another brilliant and practical approach to end poverty through the development of successful social businesses. The definition and objectives of social business are clearly outlined. Impact of social business to eradiate the poverty from the face of the earth and endless possibilities of other social benefits are beautifully discussed. The fundamental assumption by most economists that entrepreneurs are one-dimensional, in that most entrepreneurs resort to making money, is clearly challenged by the author. The concept of social business is documented with an example of Grameen Danone business where the goal of this self-sustaining organization is not to maximize profit but to remove malnutrition in children in Bangladesh. This has really made me a loyal customer of Danone products as this company is doing more than just making profit for its shareholders.

    Excellent for business people, entrepreneurs, policy makers, investors and philanthropists, but not recommended for the casual read.

    This book is very informational and lays out a clear explanation of social business and how it differs from corporations, non profits, and governmental organizations. It is occasionally a tedious read that goes too in-depth into topic/story/opinion that begins to sound redundant, but overall it is a very enlightening book with a compelling concept for the future of business, especially the business of philanthropy and poverty eradication.

    Great material. Great ideas. Difficult to get through. Comparable to "Long Road to Freedom" regarding Nelson Mandela.
