Management expert Peter Drucker insists that "social entrepreneurship is as important as economic entrepreneurship. More important, perhaps. In the United States, we have a very healthy economy but a very sick society .Fortunately there are enough successes around so that we know it can be done_and also how to do it."

They are practical idealists who use modern tools and technology to share the age-old love of God with the disadvantaged_from at-risk kids to dysfunctional families to impoverished minorities to the homeless.

Bennett * Bob Buford, best-selling author (over 200,000 books in print) and foremost authority on social entrepreneurs * Juan Benitez, former Cuban refugee and president of Micron Technology, who now helps the poor around the world Throughout this book, Oster and Hamel highlight practical principles that will help you use your resources, abilities, and influence to create positive social change and improve the world your grandchildren will inherit
