Praise for Be the Solution

"In the past, many believed you either went into 'publicservice' to do good, or you 'went into business' to make money. Fewrealized that the long-term success of business depends on servingpeople, not making money. Few realized that perhaps the best way toserve the public was through free enterprise. Whole Foods Marketfounder John Mackey, visionary thinker Michael Strong, micro lenderMuhammad Yunus, and a few others understand these truths. Be theSolution is the best single book to read to understand the emergingways in which entrepreneurs can change the world."
