Real stories about real people improving everyday life for themselves and their communities.

Doing Good: Inspirational Stories of Everyday Americans at Home and at Work is a collection of profiles of people who have found ways to make a difference—serving their communities, helping friends and family, improving the quality of life and work for colleagues, doing what they can to make the world a better place. A few of them are famous or prominent, but most of them not known outside their own communities. The modern-day Helen Keller. The widowed great-grandmother who lives alone in the Rocky Mountains and passes along her outdoors skills to children. The college professor who spends his summers teaching poor Appalachian kids to use computers. Top business executives using their time, money and skills to make a difference. The Big City Forest man. The best pickup basketball player in America. The senior citizens who help other 'silver surfers' lean to use the Internet. The lady brewer. The man who invented e-mail. These stories and more provide lessons for us all in how to work, how to play and how to live our lives to the fullest.
