    2. FASCINATING subject matter. Muhammad Yunus is an inspiring individual. Interesting look at microloans. Book itself is not well written as the author inserts herself and commentary too much into the book.

    3. Mohammad Yunus is an amazing man who dreams of ending poverty. From Bangladesh, where he develops the model for micro-financing, Yunus goes on to make a worldwide imprint, winning the Nobel Peace Prize along the way. Author Esty captures Yunus the man, his dynamic energy and his vision.
