Imagine waking up every morning believing that your actions can make a significant change in the world.

For everyone who has ever yearned for a better life and a better world, Craig and Marc Kielburger share a blueprint for personal and social change that has the power to transform lives one act at a time. Through inspirational contributions from people from all walks of life and moving stories drawn from more than a decade of their experience as international change-makers, the Kielburgers reveal that a more fulfilling path is ours for the taking when we find the courage to reach out.

Me to We is an approach to life that leads us to recognize what is truly valuable, make new decisions about the way we want to live, and redefine the goals we set for ourselves and the legacy we want to leave. Above all, it creates new ways of measuring meaning, happiness, and success in our lives, and makes these elusive goals attainable at last.

After you've absorbed the ideas presented in this book, your life may not end up as you had envisioned. You may not acquire a house on a beach in the Caymans, but you may find your toes grounded in the sand. You may not see an enormous change in your social life, but in your life you may very well see enormous social change. You may not find the person of your dreams, but you will help people young and old go beyond their's. This book will open your eyes and change the way you look at life. Treat it as an invitation: an invitation to discover the power of the Me to We philosophy and to join the growing community of people around the world who are embracing this way of life.

From the Inside Flap:

In "Me to We: Turning Self-Help on Its Head, the authors of the best-selling "Take Action! series invite you to transform your own life and the lives of the people around you. Craig and Marc Kielburger have written an innovative book that outlines a philosophy of living that challenges the way we look at the world. It requires energy, ideas and maybe even courage, but the payoff is huge: a longer and healthier life, personal growth, gratification, and happiness.

In "Me to We you will discover stories about people whose passion is infectious and whose life lessons are profound. You will learn that the self-help culture that has shaped so much of modern life has led us up the wrong path with its focus on "me" and not "we." The road to happiness and fulfillment is a much different road as told by the many people who have contributed to the book.

Best of all, "Me to We is relevant to all readers including parents, young people, seniors and business leaders providing practical ways on how to incorporate this philosophy into your lives. Be inspired and share the feeling with your neighbors, friends and family. Your life will never be the same!
