The story of the transformation of a Microsoft executive who left his high paying job to found a nonprofit organization that promotes literacy by building schools, libraries, and computer labs in Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Africa. Very inspirational, introspective, and honest, but a bit self-promoting. Makes you wonder why we who take so much for granted in America, don't do more, and what we could be doing to help. Another must-read.
