Many of us donate to charitable causes, and millions more work or volunteer for nonprofit organizations. Yet virtually none of us has been taught what it means to succeed at doing good, let alone how to do so. In short we've never been encouraged to treat charity with the seriousness and rigor it deserves.

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

The book is as easy to listen to as Simon's great TEDx talk
