Principles for driving significant change throughout an entire system....
Drawing on the knowledge and experience of working with hundreds the world's top social change leaders in all fields, Beverly Schwartz presents a model for change based on five proven principles that any individual leader or organization can apply to bring about deep, lasting, and systematic change. Rippling shows how to activate the type of change that is needed to address the critical challenges that threaten to destroy the foundations of our society and planet in these increasingly turbulent times.
These actionable principles are brought to life by compelling real-life stories. Schwartz provides a road map that allows anyone to become a changemaker.
Rippling clearly demonstrates how and when empathy, creativity, passion, and persistence are combined, significant, life-altering progress is indeed possible.
This book is about serious business, it is not left wing talk or fuzzy and blurry thinking, these stories (the book is build on several unconnected stories), all, have a 'good for society' start, but these entrepreneurs doing good things for the community from creativity and courage that a lot of starting (or mature) entrepreneurs can learn a lot from. I am very glad that the stories are being told in the movie 'who cares?' coming out in april 2013. This is a book every business administration student should have on his or her list.
What made the experience of listening to Rippling the most enjoyable?
It is excellently written and every chapter is so inspiring that you cannot but keep reading. Learning NEW innovative things just gives a sense that ALL IS POSSIBLE.
Rippling is so inspiring and motivating that when you finish reading you wish there was a Rippling II!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rippling?
Each chapter has a riveting story of a social entrepreneur described in such a plausible way ... that first you want to meet that Social Entrepreneur and second the reader is inspired to DO something and become a Social Entrepreneur
