Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur's Odyssey to Educate the World's Children : Eight years ago, John Wood was on a firm, rising career path. As a marketing executive at Microsoft, he had a job that most professionals would envy. But then, on vacation in mountainous Nepal, he found a new mission. Leaving his job, Wood launched Room to Read, an organization that has developed a network of thousands of schools and libraries in poverty-plagued locales throughout Africa and Asia. Leaving Microsoft to Change the World tells the story of this personal sea-change, but it's also an engrossing account of how one man applied his business savvy to launch a successful altruistic project.
