Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this fascinating memoir of his transformation, Smith shows how business can be a force for radical change, that business driven by simple core values--not the hijacked values of right-wing extremism but common values of compassion and decency--can truly make the world a better place.

Synopsis:

A son of the conservative South and president of his colleges Young Christian Club, Dave Smith was radicalized by Vietnam. The young Porsche-driving computer programmer went to work with César Chávez during the formative years of the United Farm Workers. From there, Smith became instrumental in founding a series of businesses — including the seminal gardening and lifestyle company Smith and Hawken — that planted the seeds for the now-burgeoning organic and sustainable business movements. In this fascinating memoir of his transformation, Smith shows how business can be a force for radical change, that business driven by simple core values — not the hijacked values of right-wing extremism but common values of compassion and decency — can truly make the world a better place. To Be of Use is both an entertaining, stirring read and a thoughtful guide to making our work lives personally meaningful again.
