Praise For Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World…
“The Jewish Talmud teaches that if you save one life you save the entire world. Howard Buffett has lived this prescription, and in the process has saved the world many times over. 40 Chances illustrates that his commitment and passion to help folks out of poverty, at home and especially in the developing world, has had a remarkable and measurable impact on the lives of farmers and rural citizens worldwide. 40 Chances should be a primer for all our citizens on how one man has the passion to save the world, and how we can all follow his lead in our own way.”
-Secretary Dan Glickman
“Whether we are driving his combine in Illinois, meeting with farmers in Guatemala, walking across the border from Mexico to the US, or indulging in our shared loved for Dairy Queen, a day spent with Howard Buffett is one spent learning and laughing. Howard’s intellect is only surpassed by the size of his heart. This book will give readers a chance to learn from him in the way that I have and form their own plan for making the most of the 40 Chances we all have.”
-Eva Longoria, Actress and Philanthropist
“This book is like Howard himself: inspiring, positive, and full of great stories. If you ever find yourself doubting that we can change the world for the better, read this and your optimism will return.”
"Howard has three passions: his devotion to the fight against hunger and misery; his love for farming; and his ability as a photographer and writer to share his amazing journey. Through the stories in 40 Chances, Howard invites all of us to join his efforts to fight poverty."
