A very detailed, fresh, and deep book on social entrepreneurship, and development in general. Almost entire book focused on measuring and increasing impact social enterprise can make. Absolutely recommended read if you're working in international development, NGOs, social entrepreneurship, government, or solving Millenium goals. Very good investment of your time and effort! ...more
