Working with Herb was a blessing for a first-time author like me. He took time not only to know the material, but also who I was as a person, what stories I needed to tell, and what I’d want to happen as a result of the book. Twelve years after the publication of Leaving Microsoft to Change the World, Room to Read is now a force for good in the lives of over 16 million children, and one of the fastest-growing and most impactful groups working in the field of international education. If I had to name the top five reasons for this success, the book would most definitely be on that list.

When I decided to write my third book, I was thrilled that Herb was available, and once again it was a very successful partnership.
