End Malaria by Michael Bungay Stanier contains great contributions from smart authors — they’ll inspire you to do better work, become an artist and a leader, and truly make an impact in the world.
Almost anyone reading this can spare $20 (At least $20 from each copy sold goes directly to Malaria No More, an international advocacy organization, is on a mission to end malaria related deaths by 2015. ). If you can’t (and please think seriously about it if you think that’s the case), you can afford 20 minutes of emailing and tweeting and blogging about it. Every sale of this book saves lives — real people’s lives — and that makes it a no brainer. If 100,000 books get sold, 4 million lives get saved. You have no excuse to bow out; your internet connection suggests that your life is full of luxuries that most of us will likely take for granted. $20 is a few cups of coffee. Buy the book. Benefit from the content. And make the difference.
End Malaria is more than a book, it’s a great cause.
In addition to saving lives, buying this book means you can enjoy essays by 62 of American’s favorite business authors, including Tom Peters, Nicholas Carr, Pam Slim, and Sir Ken Robinson. Organized into three main sections—Focus, Courage, Resilience—and eight subsections—Tap Your Strengths, Create Freedom, Love & Be Kind, Disrupt Normal, Take Small Steps, Embrace Systems, Get Physical, Collaborate—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.
Editor Michael Bungay Stanier envisioned End Malaria as a book that would marry the best writers of the business world to a deserving cause. Michael assembled and edited this collection with a goal to leverage that breadth of expertise these writers represent for an issue of global importance.
At its core, End Malaria is about doing great work including the hard work to save lives. All of the writers in this collection and all of the partners involved have waived fees in order to raise the maximum amount of money.
