We Make a Life by What We Give Reviews

Short, sweet, and a pleasure to read, [this book] reminds us that we are capable of contributing much more when we see ourselves in the company of those who depend on us to make the most of what we have been given.

* Philanthropy News Digest *

Some books enlighten us, some books inspire us, and some books challenge us to expand our understanding of who we are and who we can become. [This book] does all three. . . . It simply surpasses all other books in the field, but more importantly, it expands our understanding of the field of philanthropy and of ourselves and our potential.

-- Heather Wood Ion * Contributing Editor *

. . . provides a rich understanding of humanity and how we must live in community.2010
