Who's to say that you or your neighbor can't invent the solution that brings a halt to chronic social problems like high school shootings, destructive gangs, or even poverty? Too difficult, you think, for any one person to conceive? Only the government can do it? Citizen-inventors, more recently known as social entrepreneurs, have been busily crafting a myriad of eye-opening social cures to rescue people, neighborhoods, even cities. Why would someone sacrifice a comfy personal life, even an NFL contract, to wage war against a Goliath-size social ill? You'd be surprised! "Tenacious" and "entrepreneurial" best describe these ingenious inventors who are saving taxpayers millions, winning thousands of volunteers, and replicating their solutions even to other nations. Read about 35 unsung everyday heroes who've turned the corner on everything from welfare dependency to urban blight and cybercrime to child abductions. Debra Berg brings to life the New Civic America, a below-the-media-radar trend that's changing America from the grassroots up!
