Leaving Microsoft to change the world

I have just finished the book Leaving Microsoft to change the world. It´s about John Wood who used to work for Microsoft at a high position but decided to quit after visiting a school while on vacation in Nepal. He founded the organization Room to Read. The non-profit organization focuses on building libraries in poor countries and other activities for poor people. It was interesting to learn how John Wood took what he learned at Microsoft and applied it to a non-profit organization.
