It creates a healthy dissatisfaction in the reader which compels you to rethink your current values, strategies and approaches and think creatively about your organization. This book is strong affirmation for those individuals and organizations who believe that there can & should be a more "natural" and "organic" way of conducting business and service than we are currently investing.
Validing thinking, creativity, the power of self-organization, and the hope that motivates and captivates all social entrepreneurs are common themes throughout this book. A difficult read for linear and pragmatic thinkers but one that creates a vibrant balance between purpose and praxis. Worth every penny!
