Publishers WeeklyA long-time philanthropist, Loews Hotels CEO Tisch (Chocolates on the Pillow Aren't Enough) writes with contagious excitement about what he sees as a new era of civic engagement, bringing more opportunities than ever for individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations. From jet-set party promoter Scott Harrison, whose organization funds drinking water projects in 14 developing nations, to many other amazing people and organizations, Tisch documents a shift from volunteerism to active citizenship, less about alleviating symptoms and more about addressing root causes in problems like poverty, hunger, homelessness, and disease. In chapters like Social Entrepreneurship and Digital Citizenship, Tisch provides plentiful case studies of the model in action, showcasing the worldwide opportunities for and benefits of service. By the time a concluding list of 51 ways to "join the movement" rolls around, it's likely Tisch will have inspired readers to take him up on one of them.
