Leaving Microsoft To Change The World – John Wood

Posted on February 8th, 2010 by in Business, Current Affairs, Economics, Finance, Non-Fiction

Leaving Microsoft To Change The World, as related by John Wood,  is all about a personal journey that leads toward benefiting children of the developing world by expanding knowledge.

John Wood discovered his passion, his greatest success, and his life’s work not at business school or helping lead Microsoft’s charge into Asia in the 1990s but on a soul searching trip to the Himalayas. He made the difficult decision to walk away from his lucrative career to create Room to Read, a nonprofit organization that promotes education across the developing world. By the end of 2007, the organization will have established over 5,000 libraries and 400 schools, and awarded long term scholarships to more than 3,000 girls, giving more than one million children the lifelong gift of education.
