Be the Difference: A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World

Danny Seo, Author, Deepak Chopra, Foreword by New Society Publishers $14.95 (171p) ISBN 978-0-86571-432-8
When Danny Seo was 12 years old, he inspired more than 25,000 teenagers across the country to join him in a conservation effort called Earth 2000, attracting the support of respected figures like Dr. Jane Goodall and many prestigious journals. Now 22 years old, he delivers his third book (after Generation React and Heaven on Earth). In Be the Difference: A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World, which features a foreword by Deepak Chopra, he outlines grassroots activism from soup to nuts. Whether the reader wants to start a new organization, join an already active one or revive one that's floundering, Seo shares countless examples of how he managed the various roles required (e.g., fund-raising, attracting national media attention). His target audience is teens, college students and young adults, but in reality, this book is a winner for anyone with the passion to make a difference. ( Apr. 22)
