This is an interesting book... at first. Yunus details how his Nobel peace prize winning concept of micro-lending to alleviate poverty came about. It is very interesting to read how he was a respected Economics professor, and how he found the great theories of economics worked well in just that, theory, but in real life people right outside his classroom were starving to death. It is inspiring to read how the bank began, how he started studying the poorest of the poor and was astonished at how a lack of just $27 was keeping an entire village in poverty. It is amazing to read how he started the bank, how it succeeded and took off. Then, it becomes less interesting, inspiring, and amazing, as it just goes on, and on, and on... Imagine going to the website of a groundbreaking company, and clicking on the "About us" section, only to find that it is about 300 pages. Yeah, that's how this book felt.
