0865712212 182 pages. Mixes stories, exercises and theme chapters into a provocative handbook for re-thinking our society's mindless quest for wealth, power and privilege. It helps us all, rich and poor, reconsider the role of money in our lives, culture and economy. Features stories of 16 people who have given away much, even all, of their material wealth to help create a more livable world. Explores what motivated these people to give away so much, what they chose to do with their money, and how, in the process of giving, they discovered deeper security and meaning in their lives. Interviewees include George Pillsbury, Millard Fuller (Habitat for Humanity), Sallie Bingham (Kentucky Fund for Women) and Ben Cohen (Ben and Jerry's Homemade). Their sources of wealth include Proctor and Gamble, Oscar Meyer and Standard Oil. "A fascinating and sensitive study that reveals how much a person can gain by giving it all away." - Amy Domini, Ethical Investing.
