Overview

DARE TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Why do some great ideas take off and soar, while others never get off the ground? Where does that elusive sense of being part of something larger than ourselves come from? How can each of us harness that feeling to help fuel the world’s best ideas and turn them into movements?

In Larger Than Yourself, Thibault Manekin tells gripping stories about inspirational people and pivotal moments that answer these questions at a time when social entrepreneurship is no longer a buzzword but a global necessity. He shares his experiences helping to bridge social divides in war-torn countries through sports and reimagining the real estate industry so that buildings empower communities and unite cities, illustrating how we all can turn ideas into movements. The seven distinct lessons that emerge become actionable principles for the doers and dreamers of today, inspiring you with takeaways to assist in the pursuit of your own endeavors.
