[Read by David Drummond]
Foreword by Warren E. Buffett

If you had the resources to accomplish something great in the world, what would you do?

Legendary investor Warren E. Buffett posed this challenge to his son (Howard G. Buffett) in 2006, when he announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune to philanthropy. So, Howard G. Buffett set out to help the most vulnerable people on Earth -- nearly a billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard has given himself a deadline: forty years to put more than $3 billion to work on this challenge.

Each of us has about forty chances to accomplish our goals in life. Howard learned this lesson through his passion for farming: all farmers can expect to have about forty growing seasons, giving them just forty chances to improve on every harvest. This lesson applies to all of us, however, because we all have about forty productive years to do the best job we can, whatever our passions may be.

Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World is a book that captures Howard's journey. We join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. It is told in a unique format: forty stories that will provide readers a compelling look at Howard's lessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth.

About the Author: Howard G. Buffett is the president of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. A farmer, businessman, politician, photographer, and philanthropist, he has dedicated his life to wildlife conservation and finding solutions to world hunger. He is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador against Hunger and serves on the corporate boards of Berkshire Hathaway, the Coca-Cola Company, and Lindsay Corporation.
