Reviews

"This book is fucking incredible. What a pleasure to read. Required reading. I think this will be one of the most important books in social entrepreneurship. I don't actually know how Jonathan managed to capture this much nuance, wisdom, leadership and other things and never let it get boring. I read the whole thing in a day. I couldn't put it down." -Saul Garlick, Founder and Chairman, ThinkImpact"A book for our times. A witty, must-read primer for every social entrepreneur and every changemaker. Practical, hard-hitting advice coupled to important ethical questions confronting our field. A refreshing, unique look at the field of social entrepreneurship. Jonathan gives us the pragmatic guideposts we all need. The book I wish I had read in college." -Premal Shah, President and Co-Founder, KIVA"Buckle up! From the Bolivian Andes to the California lowlands, Jonathan takes you for a ride that will shake your inner radical free. By turns erudite and irreverent, angry and inspiring, this riveting, remarkable book nails what it means to be a social entrepreneur. On Lewis's rollicking road to enlightenment, you'll laugh out loud and be moved to tears. You'll meet an unforgettable cast of characters who have shaped one self-proclaimed "unfinished" social entrepreneur in his life's quest to right all that's wrong in the world. Read this book to rekindle your passion, re-right your compass, and restore your belief in what human beings can achieve. Read this book to renew your soul." -Sally Osberg, President and CEO, Skoll Foundation"The Unfinished Social Entrepreneur is certainly a call to action, but it is equally a call to reflection, to celebration, to accountability. Jonathan's voice is exuberant; ebullient; authentic. He is irreverent toward the current orthodoxies of social entrepreneurship and unapologetically seeks to reorient his reader to root motivations--to be honestly engaged in demanding work that aligns our own needs with the core social and environmental challenges of our times. His is a wide-ranging, eclectic, inclusive mind. His vision is both grand and gritty, inspirational and everyday, inviting us to bridge and meld lofty ambition with practical reality." -Tony Sheldon, Executive Director, Program on Social Enterprise, Yale School of Management "Lewis will make you laugh, cry or get angry, and then act! An impassioned plea to do change-making: citizen-get-off-your-ass. This is a good book! Saul Alinsky meets Dave Barry. Mandela meets Chris Rock." - Michael Gordon, Director, Center for Social Impact, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan"Jonathan humanizes social entrepreneurship. He talks to us in a straightforward way, illustrating with personal experience the ups and downs of a social change career. He reminds seasoned social entrepreneurs of the importance of a moral compass, of remembering whose side we're on, and of deciding which enemies are worth making. Funny; engaging; deep. The book I wish I'd read when I was 18." -Martin Burt, Founder and CEO, Fundacion Paraguaya"Jonathan Lewis has risked trying and learning changemaking, and shares that journey in a light-footed style that treats the reader like a family member." -Bill Drayton, CEO, Ashoka: Everyone a Changemaker
