    Muhammad Yunus, the practical visionary who pioneered microcredit and won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for his world-changing efforts, here develops his revolutionary new concept that promises to redeem the failed promise of free enterprise: social business.

    Story

    The author does a great job of stating his case for a Social Business. His passion is palpable. He gives easy to understand instructions and or suggestions on how to start a social business, what to focus on, and the importance of being passionate about the endeavor. He is a true humanitarian who looks for and finds ways to help his people. While I know that the great strides he made were not easy, I think that he was able to accomplish so much because of the economic situation of Bangledesh. He could easily make money in America and use a fraction of the money to fix major problems in his country. I don't think it would be that easy in America.

    Winner of the Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize, Diana Gabaldon is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Outlander series. This fourth novel featuring popular character Lord John Grey is told both from Lord Grey’s perspective and from that of Jamie Fraser, the star of the Outlander series.

    Teahouse Fox says: "Lord John 'Quixote' rides again"
    "Very good book"

    Story

    I have read several of Diana Gabaldon books about Jamie and Claire Frazier. I absolutely love Jamie. I enjoyed this book. It gives insight to what his life was like when Claire left. It has a lot of returning characters. The story line was good as always. I recommend all of the series as well as this book.

    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, takes on a case as a favor to his friend Thomas - a vampire of dubious integrity - only to become the prime suspect in a series of ghastly murders.

    Karin W. says: "another terrific installment in the series..."

    Story

    The book holds your interest, but I have read several of his other novels that were more engaging. Several times during this book I wanted to fast forward. I really wish he would get a girlfriend. And he gets beat up and hurt a heck of a lot in this book. Overall, he prevails, battered and worn. What's up with a hero that is always getting jacked up? If that keeps happening he'll be dead and the series will end. The narrator as always is great. You learn more about the main character's past. That's good. Some good surprises and some bad ones in the book.
