End Malaria with Great Work


I just read the book End Malaria. It's a cool new book put together by Michael Bungay Stanier of Box Of Crayons fame. It is published by Seth Godin's The Domino Project... and it will save lives just by your purchase.


End Malaria: Bold Innovation, Limitless Generosity, and the Opportunity to Save a Life is written by 64 thought leaders - including Tom Peters, Gary Vaynerchuk, Sir Ken Robinson, Brene Brown, & Seth Godin to name just a few. It's the list I would put together for the game, Who would you invite to a dinner party.


The topic is Great Work and doing more of it. The book is divided into 8 main themes: Tap Your Strengths, Create Freedom, Love & Be Kind, Disrupt Normal, Take Small Steps, Embrace Systems, Get Physical, Collaborate.


"More than fifty extraordinary writers and thinkers have come together to contribute to this project and to write about what they think is most important to let Great Work flourish in your life and your organization. Great Work is the work you do that has meaning and that you care about and that has impact - in short, the work that matters."


$20 from the sale of each book goes to Malaria No More.


So, I guess the question is: Have you got your copy yet?
