Synopsis

Legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son in 2006, when he announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune to philanthropy. Howard G.

And Howard has given himself a deadline: 40 years to put more than $3 billion to work on this challenge. 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry Worldis a new book that captures Howard's journey. Beginning with his love for farming, we join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. It is told in a unique format: 40 stories that will provide readers a compelling look at Howard's lessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth. This book presents a way of thinking that speaks to every person wanting to make a difference. It's a mind-set, providing reasons to hope and actions to take. About new approaches that are desperately needed. 40 Chancesprovides inspiration to transform each of our limited chances into opportunities to change the world.
