Among those profiled are Clara Barton (founder, American Red Cross), Lord Baden-Powell (creator, Boy Scouts), and Father Flanigan of Boys Town fame. The book is intended to show that individuals can make a social difference, helping the less fortunate and otherwise improving society, through application of the drive and talent that entrepreneurs typically use to create successful for-profit firms.
