It's probably been said a million times, but the only way to describe this book is with one word: inspirational.

I was so inspired, and so in awe of Adam's drive, determination and passion, that somewhere in the middle of the book I looked up his website and donated.

I admire what he has accomplished, and I don't have that same passion in me, so I admire it in others and do my little bit to support great causes like this one. What can be better than providing education to someone who would otherwise not get that opportunity?

The Promise of a Pencil is about a young entrepreneur who decides to give up his life on Wall Street and dedicate his life to building schools in developing. The book is all about the challenges that Braun faced as he was started to start Pencils of Promise.
