Review:

"Whether you are an experienced social entrepreneur - or just thinking of becoming one - Creating Good Work is a powerful read. It provides practical insights on key elements that will build successful businesses and reminds all of us why we're doing what we're doing: the desire to create a better world for all of us." - Van Jones, president, Rebuild The Dream

"Creating Good Work offers those of us interested in 'deliberately disruptive design' inspiration and wisdom from the most potent leaders of our time. This book has done an incredible service by compiling in one place practical lessons and a framework for everyone engaged in a lifelong study of how to improve our world." - Carla Javits, President, REDF (Roberts Enterprise Development Fund)

"Creating Good Work is a must read for any student considering a meaningful, purpose-driven career in business. Why live your life any other way?" - Steve Mariotti, Founder, NFTE, National Federation for Teaching Entrepreneurship

"Building a healthy economy requires a commitment to making a difference in the world. Creating Good Work provides powerful and inspiring examples of how that can take place." - Larry Senn, Chairman Senn Delaney, Author of Up the Mood Elevator: Living Life at Your Best

"At Goodwill Industries, we've always operated by the dictum of creating good work. Creating Good Work is a clear demonstration of thought leadership and innovative practice in the realm of social enterprise. This book will serve as a GPS for 21st century social innovation." - Jim Gibbons, President and CEO, Goodwill Industries International

"Social entrepreneurs are committed to a goal that neither our government nor big business has been willing to take on - the building of an enlightened society. It's the job of these special people who want to leave the world a better place for those who have yet to be born. The book provides practical, hard-won advice for how prospective and even in-the-trenches social entrepreneurs can do just that. This is a book you'll not want to miss." - Jeff Hollender, cofounder, Seventh Generation

"Ron Schultz has done a great job of compiling and illuminating an A to Z read that encompasses theory, application, and practice, peppered with lots of pragmatic advice. Creating Good Work provides a needed pathway that leads us from thought to essential action as it helps readers explore and develop transformative ways to influence social change. It's an informative and important read for all who are interested in finding a new way forward." - Beverly Schwartz, author of Rippling: How Social Entrepreneurs Spread Innovation Throughout the World, and VP Global Marketing, Ashoka

"If you are interested in Social Entrepreneurship - as an entrepreneur, a student, a teacher, a politician, a funder, or simply a citizen of a world that needs to create good work - then read this book. Read what you need, when you need it, and you might find yourself becoming a peaceful warrior in the battle to change the world, one disruptive step at a time." - Dr. ML Rhodes,

Director Undergraduate Teaching & Learning, School of Business, Trinity College Dublin

"Creating Good Work focuses on 'social innovation,' which is the third largest pillar of innovation within our society. Our ability to create good work in the social innovation sphere will be the absolute decisive challenge for our next generation. This is especially true in terms of building our future economies. The only resource that will really count will be: how well will people be able to develop their own capabilities? With this wonderful book, Ron Schultz provides a practical and pioneering work on this subject." - Peter Spiegel, Head of Institute, Genesis Institute for Social Innovation and Impact Strategies, Berlin, Germany

"All entrepreneurship should be social - it should advance a social good. But often, it is merely opportunistic, harnessing impulses over choices, addictions over needs. Creating Good Work shows how to disrupt harmful business practices, deliberately, through innovations that create value for everyone." - Bill Shireman, CEO and President, Future500.

"Today just good enough ... no longer is. A bold goal, like ending childhood hunger, requires a new outlook. This book has the impact of defibrillator paddles on your worldview of what good work is. Your eyes will be opened to new possibilities!" - Ron Martin, former CEO, Mission Federal Credit Union
