Reviews - What do customers think about Who Says You Can't Change the World: Jubilee Campaign Challenging Injustice?
A "must read" Apr 11, 2009
I'll admit I'm slightly biased towards this book.
I used to work with Danny Smith many years ago and not only became a good friend but the experience of working with his organization, The Jubilee Campaign, has deeply touched and influenced my life.
The stories Danny recalls in this book motivate and demand a response. In my own experience this book helped me finally decide to pick up the baton and follow where my heart was leading, to start a relief and development non-profit organization to help change the world.
I would strongly recommend this book!
