About this book

There's an activist in all of us, and you don't have to shout about it to be heard. To prove it, Satish Kumar has invited eleven of those activists he most admires, in areas ranging from environmental change to human rights, to share their own inspiring stories, revealing who or what kind of world they want to help create. Their illuminating and often moving life stories will inspire all of us to get off the couch and do something ourselves to help shape a better world.
