Wise and optimistic, [Novogratz] provides a benevolent tonic for those looking to rise above the troubled waters of the age and embrace the 'beautiful struggle' of rebuilding our broken world. An inspiringly hopeful book. --Kirkus Reviews An urgent manifesto about what it means to stand with the poor, to see through clear eyes, and most of all, to do work worth doing. Jacqueline Novogratz helps each of us understand that we're capable of so much, if we only cared enough. --Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of Linchpin and This is Marketing Everyone who wants to have an impact on the world -- from entrepreneurs, philanthropists and CEOs, to volunteers, teachers and advocates -- would be wise to keep a copy of this new book by Jacqueline Novogratz at hand. The original yet basic strategic ideas she shares in this instant classic can be the difference between just hoping for change and actually creating it.

There's a remedy for this discouragement: Jacqueline Novogratz's Manifesto for a Moral Revolution. Positive change isn't just possible; it is happening all around us. Novogratz introduces the quiet warriors for a better world, and shows how each of us can be part of the moral revolution, starting today. --Arthur C Brooks, author of Love Your Enemies, president emeritus, American Enterprise Institute & Professor of Practice, Harvard Kennedy School and Senior Fellow, Harvard Business School Don't let the words 'manifesto' and 'revolution' fool you; this book is all about love, humility, and patience. With gorgeous writing, arresting stories, and deep insights into complex systems, Novogratz shows the power of listening--not just to the poor but to everyone who can help you see new possibilities. In the process she offers a way to blend capitalism and social justice that will inspire people from across the political spectrum, and which is, I think, the moral revolution we most need. --Jonathan Haidt, New York Times bestselling author of The Righteous Mind and co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind
