Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World

By Howard G Buffett

With a foreword by Warren Buffett, "40 Chances" is an "inspiring manifesto...both an informative guidebook and a catalyst for igniting real changes" in the struggle against world hunger.
If someone granted you $3 billion to accomplish something great in the world, what would you do? In 2006, legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son Howard G. Buffett. Howard set out to help the most vulnerable people on earth--nearly a billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard gave himself a deadline: forty years to put the resources to work on this challenge.
"40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World" captures Howard's journey. Beginning with his love for farming, we join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. Each of the forty stories here provides a compelling look at the lessons Howard learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth. But this message goes beyond the pages of this book, it's also a mindset: a way of thinking that speaks to every person wanting to make a difference. It's about reasons to hope and actions we can take. "40 Chances" "recounts Howard's personal and professional experiences in surprisingly candid and colorful fashion...successfully blending personal stories with a tough look at the struggle to fight domestic food scarcity and world hunger...A satisfying read" ("Publishers Weekly") that provides inspiration to transform each of our limited chances into opportunities to change the world.
