    4. I m not exactly sure why, but I had high hopes for this book I feel that it has been frequently referenced in various conversations I ve had regarding social impact innovation But after reading the forward and intro, I realized that I needed to shift my expectations and recognize that the book is intended to be a guide for understanding their social entrepreneurship framework, which although seems pretty straight forward, was really brought to life in context through the various case studies sha [...]

A quick read but one of the scholarly books on the subject of social entrepreneurship The authors provide a definition and a framework for it, contrasting it with government and private business, and arguing that social entrepreneurship does have a place, indeed, is necessary in today s world The bar is set high for one to be a social entrepreneur they must change the existing equilibrium to a new one, and not just provide incremental solutions, very much in the spirit of Peter Thiel s Zero to O [...]
