I'm a big fan of Seth Godin, so when I heard about this initiative from his blog it was a no-brainer for me. I am happy to support a project that looks to eradicate Malaria from the continent of Africa-period.
With regard to the book I expected useful, insightful information from a varied group of business thinkers and I found exactly that-the pages are packed with great ideas. Each contributor has delivered practical food for thought and ideas on how to shake up our perception on how we work. The beauty of End Malaria is that you can pick it up, read a section (think, plan, implement or simply muse!) put it back down and return to read from another author whenever you want!

Buy a book, save a life. It's that simple.
62 authors contributed useful, inspirational gems to this little book as a way to raise money to fight malaria. By May 2012, it raised over $300,000.
As Seth Godin said: "62 authors contributed their insights and their guts to this anthology. It's provoked new ideas, started conversations and saved the lives of countless kids. All because editor Michael Bungay Stanier stood up, and people listened."
Besides being a superb source of daily inspiration, it is a provocative demonstration of the power of an idea when packaged in an ebook.

An excellent book benefitting a worthy cause. Well worth reading, tons of great ideas/different perspectives to think about. And, with every purchase you're helping to make a difference (seriously - 2 children will live because you bought a copy!). Highly recommend
