When fourteen-year-old Hannah Salwen saw a homeless man at the same instant she spotted a man driving a glistening Mercedes, she said, "Dad, if that man had a less nice car, that man there could have a meal." Acting on her urge to do something, Hannah's family made the extraordinary decision to sell their Atlanta mansion, buy a house half its size, and give half of the sale price to a worthy charity. Their plan eventually took them across the globe and well out of their comfort zone. In the end they learned that they had the power to change a little corner of the world. Warm, funny, and deeply moving, The Power of Half is the story of how one family grew closer as they discovered that half could be so much more.

About the Author:

Kevin Salwen was a reporter and editor at the Wall Street Journal for more than eighteen years. After that, he started a magazine, Motto. He has served on the board of Habitat for Humanity in Atlanta and works with the U.S. Olympic Committee.



Hannah Salwen is a junior at the Atlanta Girls' School, where she is a member of the varsity volleyball team, coeditor of the school yearbook, and a representative on the student council. She has been volunteering since the fifth grade at the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Café 458, and other nonprofits.

From AudioFile:

A father and daughter write about their family's decision to sell their home, move into a smaller house, and put half of the proceeds toward helping a village in Ghana. Fred Sanders and Jen Taylor fit the roles of father and daughter well. Sanders conveys the right balance of altruism and doubt. He also comes up with dead-on voices for eager daughter Hannah and skeptical son Joseph during the family discussions of the project. With youthful exuberance Jen Taylor reads Hannah's advice on instilling charitable behavior in families. The Salwens' rare commitment to helping others, unshaken by the recent drop in home prices, will give listeners much to consider. J.A.S. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
