I was fortunate to win a copy of this book through the Goodreads giveaway.

This is a collection of interviews with young people who have found themselves extraordinary careers that line up with their dreams and value systems. The author guides the reader through how the business environment has radically changed with this current generation of workers. He discusses how one should be open to interning to get the required experience post college, should be willing to disrupt the current business environment, and should not be afraid to pursue their own business venture that lines up with their values.

He interviews he founders of TOMS shoes, Napster, FEED and many other ventures, and analyzes why he believes that the for profit companies that are philanthropic in their operations are the wave of the future.

There is lots of good information in this book, for businesspeople of all ages, not just those straight out of college who are looking for employment.
