Summary
For anyone who has ever wondered if what they do matters or how they can make a difference - Nan Alexander Doyal's voice is what you ve been waiting for. In her book Dig Where You Are she introduces us to seven men and women who have solved some of the biggest challenges facing our societies today. Their stories are entertaining, heart-breaking, inspiring and at their core, empowering. From the slums of Mumbai, the villages of Tibet and northeast Thailand, the inner cities of Philadelphia and San Francisco, and a ghetto outside Stockholm, Dig Where You Are tells of an artist, a surgeon, a teacher, a criminologist, an economist, a community organizer and a general physician each of whom saw a way beyond suffering and injustice, took responsibility for the wellbeing of others and ended up transforming lives and communities across the world. There is a human perspective to these stories that strips away the heroic veneer of its characters and shows recognizable, even average people making a big impact on the world around them. Before becoming a writer, Nan Doyal traveled and worked extensively in North America, Europe and Asia as President of The International Forum. As such she is more than the narrator; she is a guide in the deepest sense. She leads us with knowledge and empathy, sharing stories that are both inspiring and empowering. Like all great guides, she gives us much more than we asked for
