Leaving Microsoft to change the world by John Wood

The book Leaving Microsoft to change the world is 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.
The book is about to take the big step to dare to quit your job and pursue what you want to do in life. It was also interesting to learn how John Wood took what he learned at Microsoft and applied it to a non-profit organization.
