    Review of Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur's Odyssey to Educate the World's Children by John Wooden
    4.0 out of 5
    Inspiring book that catalogs the birth of a large, successful non-profit
    John Wood's journey from Microsoft executive living a plush ex-patriate lifestyle to the dedicated founder of a global education non-profit (Room to Read) is inspiring. Similar to Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, both men found themselves in impoverished parts of the world and decided to do something about it. It would be hard to recommend one book over the other or one of the non-profit enterprises run by each respective author as being more worthy of someone's time or money, so maybe the best thing is to read both books and then decide which resonates with you more!
