Making a Difference: Reflecting on the Past, Thinking of the Future by James L. Hecht is the inspirational story of former DuPont executive James L. Hecht who has made time for, and created opportunities for, social change. Along with his wife Amy, Hecht has made many varied efforts to improve the world. Among the important causes they have worked to support are hospice, equal opportunities, energy conservation, national park safety, and health care in Nepal. This biographical and motivational book is both interesting and inspirational. I would highly recommend it. ( )
