¡@Description John Wood discovered his passion, greatest success, and life's work¡Xnot at business school or leading Microsoft's charge into Asia in the ¡¥90s¡Xbut on a soul-searching trip to Himalayas. While visiting a remote Nepalese school, Wood learned that students had few books in the library. And at that moment, he made the decision to walk away from Microsoft and create Room to Read¡Xan organization that has donated more than 1.2 million books, established more than 2,600 libraries and 200 schools, and sent 1,700 girls to school on scholarship¡Xtouching the lives of 875,000 children with the gift of education. This book chronicles Wood's struggle to find a meaningful outlet for his managerial talents and entrepreneurial zeal. For every high-achiever who wonders what life might be like giving back, Wood offers a vivid and absorbing tale of how to take the lessons learned at a hard-charging company like Microsoft and apply them to one of the world's most pressing problems: lack of basic literacy.
