批評家のレビュー

“Muhammad Yunus is a practical visionary who has improved the lives of millions of people in his native Bangladesh and elsewhere in the world.” ( Los Angeles Times)

あらすじ・解説

Muhammad Yunus, the practical visionary who pioneered microcredit and won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for his world-changing efforts, here develops his revolutionary new concept that promises to redeem the failed promise of free enterprise: social business.

Designed to fill the gap between profit-making and human needs, social business applies entrepreneurial thinking to problems like poverty, hunger, pollution, and disease, creating self-supporting enterprises that create jobs and generate economic growth even as they make the world a better place.

Partnering with some of the world’s greatest corporations, Yunus and his Grameen Bank have already launched several social businesses that are addressing challenges like malnutrition, lack of potable water, and endemic illness in Yunus’s homeland of Bangladesh, while other organizations around the world are developing their own experiments in social business.

In this book, Yunus traces the development of the social business idea and explains its lessons for entrepreneurs, social activists, and policy makers, and offers practical guidance for those who want to create social businesses of their own.

Delivers less than I had hoped

This is basically an academic review of the history of social business, a very detailed analysis of what a social business is and is not, and some practical examples. Unfortunately it is not uplifting or filled with insightful stories of how social business has changed individual lives. The company I own is heavily involved in social responsibility with the sale of entire product lines donated to a charity that feeds impoverished children. I should have loved this book but it just became noise in my headset. It is probably best suited as a resource.

Great Book

The author does a great job of stating his case for a Social Business. His passion is palpable. He gives easy to understand instructions and or suggestions on how to start a social business, what to focus on, and the importance of being passionate about the endeavor. He is a true humanitarian who looks for and finds ways to help his people. While I know that the great strides he made were not easy, I think that he was able to accomplish so much because of the economic situation of Bangledesh. He could easily make money in America and use a fraction of the money to fix major problems in his country. I don't think it would be that easy in America.

One idea repeated as nauseum

A good idea, but not worth the listening time to hear it repeated over and over

A hope for our collapsing ecomony

Yunus' theory bridges the gap between old capitalism, based on 19th century view of man as a rational profit making machine, to what science now knows about how we really work and about the damages of the old approach.
Yunus offers a real hope to establish a different type of economy with better fulfillment and joy to all, without getting carried to socialistic dreams, but rather in a very practical way.

Many questions still remain open, but this is the beginning of the road.

Best. Book. Ever.

My name is Alex Pappas. I am 23 and I just built my first social business in Asia.

Like grameen, I have started a social bank for the poor. I have helped a smart girl named Juliet build her own store for her village of 69,000 people.

She is the only store in a 3hour distance. She sees 50+ customers per day. With the success of her current store, she will build a water purification system for her village as well. They do not have pure water.
All of this, for a $2000 loan.

This is the best, and will always be the best, book I have ever read. Thank Muhammad yunus. You are a G.

Interesting Idea

I do think that more organizations should have a structure similar to what is proposed in this book instead of operating as a standard nonprofit. That being said, I do fundamentally disagree with some of what the author said so I only rated it four stars.

A great introduction to the world of social businesses globally.

I enjoyed every chapter. The audio is well read, the rxamples made are easy to capture and the whole subject was very eye opening experience. Big thanks to the author and founder of so many social business opportunities in Bangladesh and also globally.

A very narrow minded thinker

I am the CEO and founder of a business that aims to do good, and have spent more time than most thinking about this topic. I’m afraid to say this author’s approach to social impact is incredibly narrow minded. There are MANY more business models and ways to structure for-good businesses than explained here, and the model he proposes has numerous shortcomings which appear to have been conveniently ignored. Waste of time.

Keys to Social Entrepreneurship

Overall, the book was good. It teaches the lessons and principles of establishing a social enterprise.

The narrative of the book is boring, but the information is good.

Exciting opportunities for the future

Yunus lays out his vision for how social business can play its part in the future. Not entirely researched based, he focuses more on his own experience and vision, but plenty of fantastic descriptions of up and coming major impact social businesses.
