Typically, I do not post book reviews on this blog because I don’t know how useful they would be in inspiring others to make a positive impact on the world. Reading is something that inspires me, but I realize not everyone has my same tastes in books, so I usually avoid an entire post about one. I let people interested in reading browse the resources segment of Change the World. All of that to show you that the fact that I am writing about Change the World: How Ordinary People Can Accomplish Extraordinary Things by Dr. Robert E. Quinn is a testament to how important this book is for change agents like you and me.
The book is essentially about change theory: what works, and what does not. It is priceless to me because of a current volunteer position I have, but will be useful to any person trying to change their world. It looks at three heroes, Jesus, Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and derives seven “seed thoughts” that they all share. Then, it goes even further by suggesting how to incorporate these seed thoughts into your own thoughts and behaviors. Reading it, I feel simultaneously encouraged and convicted to make changes in my life and thought patterns.
I don’t want to give anything away, but you should definitely read it.
I am always looking for more books to read, what are some of your favorites for inspiring others to change the world?
Just so you know: I have absolutely no connection to the publisher, author, etc. I just like a good book when I see it
