From the Publisher"I am using your book as a required text in my course on social entrepreneurship at Berkeley this semester. I recently finished reading it and really love what you wrote. I won't go into all my thoughts in this email but suffice it to say I think you have built a model which is exemplary and others should emulate if we want to make our lives, families, communities, nations, and the world a more meaningful, prosperous, healthy, and enjoyable place. Looking forward to sharing more thoughts and ideas over a brew or coffee next time you are out this way."
--Paul Frankel, Lecturer, Center for Responsible Business, Haas School of Business, University of California at Berkeley
"While The Company We Keep tells the personal success story of this revolutionary company, that's just the beginning of all the places it goes. Written in a down-to-earth conversational voice and laced with insightful side trips that offer additional lessons, Abrams examines the role business can and should play in creating and sustaining healthy communities. He sets down a framework for a model of employee ownership and community involvement that works."
"Useful to organizations everywhere that appreciate that bigger isn't always better, money isn't always the endgame and true success comes from the meaningful work of dedicated people."
--E: The Environmental Magazine
