Craig Kielburger, Marc Kielburger. Me to We is an approach to life that leads us to recognize what is truly valuable, make new decisions about the way we want to live, and redefine the goals we set for ourselves and the legacy we want to leave. Above all, it creates new ways of measuring meaning, happiness, and success in our lives, and makes these elusive goals attainable at last. After you've absorbed the ideas presented in this book, your life may not end up as you had envisioned. You may not acquire a house on a beach in the Caymans, but you may find your toes grounded in the sand.

Craig and Marc Kielburger learned at a young age something that takes most of us decades to learn: the world revolves around us only in that it needs us to make it the best it can be. And, in a happy twist of fate, when we forget about ourselves and build a life around helping others, we end up creating happiness for ourselves.

Honestly I was forced to and told I had to purchase this book for my son by his high school. It was the only and one book chosen for all students to read during summer vacation for a summer reading program they started which students will be graded on and it will account for 5% their annual English grade. I wouldn't have purchased it otherwise. They should be offering students a selection to choose from and surely not only what's clearly a liberal arts book with only references, thoughts and views from liberal activists and celebrities only. Politics and activism doesn't belong in public middle or high schools to begin with and belongs more in colleges where and when you're an adult and actually have a choice on what classes you take. This isn't basic curriculum and is political activism at it's finest while also lining the pockets of those behind it by forcing parents to have to buy this crap.

This is an amazing and inspiring book. It's personal stories, research and interviews provide a powerful answer to the question "why should give back"? The answer -- altruism kicks off a virtuous cycle of benefits your own happiness while benefitting the world. Win win.

It is full of community service and civic action ideas that are simple, empowering, inspiring, accessible and actionable. There are lots of exciting ideas included here about how you can start small, right in your community.

In teaching how to move from "me" to "we," the authors take an empowering you-centered approach. Find what you believe in, make your own plan, and go for it. In other words, you do you. They do not have a coercive, condescending, or overbearing agenda, which can be the case with social change guides.

I also found the book to be refreshingly neutral politically. While many of the causes they chose to highlight will strongly appeal to those who are politically liberal (the authors are from Canada), they place a strong emphasis on taking personal initiative, activating resources in one's community, and making personal sacrifices -- not on top-down government policies or solutions. Many of the actions they suggest to youth readers are small kind deeds -- from babysitting for a new parent to cooking a meal for a senior -- that, practiced at scale, could result in dramatic positive results.

Finally, I love the fact that the authors embrace faith as key to effective change, to healing and renewing in our world. They make the point (with which I agree) that most major religions share universal values focused on forgiveness, compassion, and service (I have found the translator Stephen Mitchell to compellingly demonstrate this through his beautiful translations of major religious texts from the Koran to the Book of Job to the Tao Te Ching). The authors themselves are Christian and I find that they are living out their calling as disciples of Jesus Christ in an inspiring and refreshing way which could serve as a reset button to many people who have lost their faith.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is seeking meaning in chaotic world, and who seeks to inspire themselves, their friends, or their families to discover the well of joy and well-being that we each possess and which is amplified when we engage in acts of kindness and service.

First of all, I wish I could give these authors a handshake. They did a phenomenal job with helping others in need. Things that people don't really think about, such as, how children are sold for a few bucks in India by their own parents and dragged away by strangers, to work as a slave in some factory. We don't think about other countries that are not up to par with our technological countries. We don't think about Peru, and how they will be treated for any sicknesses or injuries way up in the mountains. We only see what we want to see. After I read this book in 2008, my life completely changed course on me. I was heading one way in life, but the next thing I know, my life did a complete 180 on me. I ended up moving to Japan and marrying the woman of my dreams. I must say, this book changed my life for the better. The least I could do is tell everyone how well it worked. You will not regret picking this book up!

I enjoyed this book immensely. Especially, the universal, multi-cultural worldview of the authors. Initially, I borrowed it from our library system in Maryland to see whether I wanted to add it to my collection. Then I purchased the book on amazon.com and gifted it to my friends in Eagle River, Alaska. I purchased the CD to listen to in my car. The concept of "me to we" is not new; however the book is based on the authors' experiences and successful ventures on behalf of the children of the world. As you encourage others to be less materialistic, be blessed and continue to be a blessing to others.

Craig and Mark may be young in age, but they are definitely old souls. Their grasp of Spiritual concepts goes way beyond their years.

The book shows that it doesn't matter what you know intellectually; unless you live it, it is meaningless. As one individual, you may think you are powerless, but everyone underestimates the extent to how much of a difference they can actually make.

These two brothers proved that in what they accomplished in such a short period of time. Absolutely amazing.

Good book. Received in a timely manner. It was for my children's summer reading.

Everything should run like this!
I've known about the authors of this book well before reading this. I knew it was something i had to read. The message of this book is clear "ME TO WE". in our present society of shallow people and people wanting and having more it is great to still be able to find books such as this to read. I felt i was understood and can relate to the many points and their ideas of how to become a "ME TO WE"...person and how to reach the community, family, friends, and collegues. It is an easy book to read where you can finish very quickly. This book to me is a tool and in many ways a bible.
