Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 October #1
    Designed as a guide for young social entrepreneurs, this is a thorough and passionate manual for empowered readers to pursue their dreams of making the world a better place. Research strategies, practical advice, and guidance in the areas of budgeting, marketing, and presenting (among others) fill its pages and give readers the tools they need to make their business venture a success at any stage. While best suited to a teen collection, there is no shortage of examples of younger kids who have put their ideas into action and made a difference in their community. It covers an incredible breadth of detail while still managing to be succinct. Every chapter profiles a real-life changemaker, supplies the author's own experiences, and lists key concepts or steps pertaining to the chapter's topic. It is a book that forces readers to not only think realistically but also to think big. Tips and resource lists conclude, and the mantra that change starts with you will linger well beyond the final page. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
