A Story of Hope in the Battle for Global Literacy

(John Wood’s) legacy of libraries is one of which another role model – Andrew Carnegie – would no doubt have been proud. The Financial Times

In “Creating Room to Read,” John Wood, author of “Leaving Microsoft to Change  the World,” has produced a detailed, compelling and deeply satisfying account of  MBA entrepreneurs with missionary zeal who bring literacy to the world’s poorest  children. It will restore your faith in giving back.  – Pittsburg Post-Gazette

An absorbing personal account of a remarkable achievement. — Kirkus Review

Wood’s passion for literacy and education infuses every page of the book. An inspiring read on the power of books. Booklist

…a riveting memoir, an inspirational handbook for social innovators,  a career guide for young people, a witness for children in faraway places who could go under if we turn away, and alternative policy for the architects of American foreign policy and expensive wars. Wood’s books compel you to think about the nature of work and right livelihood, risk and consequences, service to others as a key to happiness,  and money and the meaning of life.
