    this is serious business

    This book is about serious business, it is not left wing talk or fuzzy and blurry thinking, these stories (the book is build on several unconnected stories), all, have a 'good for society' start, but these entrepreneurs doing good things for the community from creativity and courage that a lot of starting (or mature) entrepreneurs can learn a lot from. I am very glad that the stories are being told in the movie 'who cares?' coming out in april 2013. This is a book every business administration student should have on his or her list.
