The author won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. To explain his formula for solving the problems of global wealth disparity and climate degradation, this audiobook needs the confidence and idealism that come across in Dan Woren's narration. His tonal and phrasing palette works well as Yunus, an activist Bangladeshi banker and economist, addresses global poverty through microlending and other forms of social capitalism. The author says the purely monetary goals of traditional capitalism should expand to include helping the poor become entrepreneurs so they can enjoy dignified work and have sustainable incomes. Though implementing these initiatives and the author's other plans for improving the planet are a heavy lift in today's political climate, his alarming data and predictions make this a call to action that we ignore at our peril.
