We are going to take a break from doing our interviews today to help spread the word about an important cause. To end malaria. How? By spreading the word about an awesome book that benefits all proceeds to help end malaria. The publisher isn’t making any money, the contributors aren’t making any money and the editor isn’t either.
It’s all good.
It isn’t very often that a book has the power to save a life. Yes, good books can improve lives, shape lives, even change lives. But when was the last time a book literally helped save a life?
The Domino Project in conjunction with Box of Crayons is working with Malaria No More to help end malaria.
Every book that gets sold will send a mosquito net to a family in need and to support life-saving work in the fight against malaria.
In addition to saving lives, buying this book means you can enjoy essays by 62 of America’s favorite business authors, including Tom Peters, Nicholas Carr, Pam Slim, and Sir Ken Robinson. Organized into three main sections – Focus, Courage, and Resilience – all essays in End Malaria share a desire to inspire readers to look within themselves for solutions to their everyday dilemmas and for motivation to realize their desires.
Here is a video trailer about the book.
You can buy it here, which I suggest you do.
And, last but not least, I want to thank all the contributors who helped bring this to life. Not that I had anything to do with this, but you must be good people to contribute to this awesome cause and book.
