A while back I got an email asking if I’d like to review a book by John Wood, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur’s Odyssey to Educate the World’s Children. I’d never heard of it…but it sounded interesting so I said "yes." It’s been in the stack waiting its turn and on Sunday its number came up. And what a beautiful book it is! I love the story!
Leaving Microsoft is the autobiographical account of how John Wood left his job with Microsoft to educate the world’s children. The founder of Room To Read, Wood’s story is both heartbreaking and inspirational. Hard to really grasp the state of the children in many parts of the world. Even harder to imagine his courage and conviction to leave a great job at a young age and set out on a quest to change the circumstances of the children of Nepal.
