Most anti-poverty programs lack a system-wide scope of effort. But when ALL stakeholders - people in poverty, communities, businesses, organizations - come to the table with a coherent plan of action, amazing things happen. This book includes clear examples and proven best practices of what is possible when we're all on the same page. It is a collection of articles published by Philip DeVol, co-author of Bridges Out of Poverty and a leading voice in helping people come together to end poverty.

This book was very helpful in terms of presented statistics and examples. This book has enlightened me to strategize future non-profit fundraising efforts in how to approach audiences as discussed in this book.

In 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate approached ten percent. Today, when new work is found, it may not be traditional. Studies estimate half of the American workforce will soon consist of freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, entreprenuers, "electronic immigrants", and so forth. Are you ready for the new normal? Dan Miller has seen it coming for years. But 48 Days to the Work You Love, is not so much about finding a new job as it is learning about who we are really called to be.

This book exceeded my expectations! I just finished reading it and I already know that I will read it again soon! I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a change and two people who are at the very beginning of their careers. I plan to buy multiple copies to share with friends and family. Thank you Dan!
