News & Opinion: Nobel Reading: Books on Muhammad Yunus
Today's Wall Street Journal has a nice series of articles about Muhammad Yunus, who has just won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on microlending, through the Grameen Bank. Tom Peters has an exuberant post on this news which is worth reading. Peters also notes that there are two excellent books worth noting: Banker to the Poor, written by Yunus; and David Bornstein's The Price of A Dream, which was just issued in paperback by Oxford University Press. I haven't read the first, but heartily recommend The Price of A Dream, which is wonderfully reported and gracefully written.
