His first book titled The Price of a Dream: The Story of the Grameen Bank which chronicles the worldwide growth of the anti-poverty strategy "micro-credit." He has exciting news about his second book, and writes:
"I just returned from the launch of my book How To Change the World in Spain and had some good news I'd like to share with you. Prime Minister Zapatero of Spain decided to celebrate the country's annual Day of the Book this past weekend by publicly giving a copy of Como Cambiar el Mundo to all of his Ministers. (Last year, he gave them Don Quixote!)
"It's potentially a significant gesture because there are not nearly enough examples of governments actively looking to social entrepreneurs for innovative policy and policy-implementation ideas."
In his book, Bornstein profiles nine remarkable social entrepreneurs--all Ashoka fellows--described as driven, creative people who question the status quo, exploit new opportunities, refuse to give up, and remake the world for the better.
