A Book to Cherish

I am a big believer in education. I think education moves the world and is what can "make or break" any country. Sadly, as we all know, the basic resources for education are not available everywhere, and in some countries kids do not have easy access to books (or paper or pens for that matter).

Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur's Odyssey to Educate the World's Children is a powerful book that narrates the story of how "Room to Read" was born, mixing in a smooth narrative business anecdotes from Microsoft with the stories of young children that all they want is to learn more. Very easy to read, "Leaving Microsoft..." shows several sides of our so inequal world but at the same time gives some hope and inevitably makes us reflect about how rich we are just because we got some good education.

If you like to read, you have to get this book! (and if you too believe in education, visit the Room to Read website and know more about their great work!)
