"A friend handed me a copy of Marjorie Kelly’s new book Owning Our Future and said he thought it was so good that he had bought a case of them to share with colleagues and friends. By the time I was 50 pages into the book, I had a similar impulse to buy a case. This is one of those books that you read and from there forward, you see the world in a different way."
