I have not reviewed a great number of books, but this one moved me. Blake Mycoskie has produced quite a following with TOMS and this book lays out how that came to be. It is written in a first person, straight forward manner that remains captivating throughout the book. He uses personal insight and first hand experience to explain how I as a regular person, can start something that matters. Obvously the goal is not to have a lot of TOMS look alike companies, but more appropriately, he explains the motivation and ability to successfully combine a for-profit company with a worthwhile cause. The adaptable nature of this basic idea allows his experience to transform ordiary companies to extraordinary businesses that can literally change lives. Even if you are not looking to start your own business or change the way you do business, this book is worthwhile reading for the insight alone.

I like the idea of starting something that makes a difference in the lives of others. While the story is nice I was actually hoping to learn more about 'the how to' of starting a business that would benefit others. As an eBook purchase there isn't really a way to 'scan' the book to see if the desired information is available within the book.

I do applaud Blake for his committment to follow through on his dream and to be persistent to reach his goal.
