Re: What's the right Title for the Muhammad Yunus book discussion?
thanks for clarifying that. I posted the message because there are messages in Mendenyo group with titles like "Mohamed Yunus Book "How to change the world", when he didn't write a book of that title.
Anyway, I bought myself a copy of the right book, "Creating a World Without Poverty" by Muhammad Yunus a few weeks ago from Amazon UK. I've just got to find time to finish it now.
I see there are audio-CD and MP3 CD audio-book versions too. It's 10 hours long, but easier than reading!
It's a pity there's no downloadable PDF eBook version that people could buy online to get it to Africa quickly.
Bye for now.
