In this wise and inspiring book, social entrepreneur Bill Shore shows us how to make the most of life and do something that counts. Like the cathedral builders of an earlier time, the visionaries described in this memoir share a single desire: to create something that endures. The extraordinary people Shore has met on his travels represent a new movement of citizens who are tapping into the vast resources of the private sector to improve public life. Among them are: -- Gary Mulhair, who has created unprecedented jobs and wealth at the largest self-supporting human-service organization of its kind, Pioneer Human Services of Seattle. -- Nancy Carstedt of the Chicago Children s Choir, which provides thousands of children their first introduction to music. -- Geoffrey Canada, who has made a safe haven for more than four thousand inner-city children in New York City, from Hell's Kitchen to Harlem. These leaders, and many others described in these pages, have built important new cathedrals within their communities, and by doing so they have transformed lives, including their own.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Bill ShorePublisher: Random House TradePublished: 11/13/2001ISBN: 9780375758294Pages: 320Weight: 0.57lbsSize: 8.08h x 5.20w x 0.66d
