ANNOUNCEMENT: New Book Release - The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer

Hi all,

I have just been emailed the details of an interesting new book which has just been released. Read on for the details.

"The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is the immensely engaging and inspiring true account of an enterprising African teenager who constructed a windmill from scraps to create electricity for his entire community.

William Kamkwamba shares the remarkable story of his youth in Malawi, Africa — a nation crippled by intense poverty, famine, and the AIDS plague — and how, with tenacity and imagination, he built a better life for himself, his family, and his village.

The poignant and uplifting story of Kamkwamba’s inspiration and personal triumph, co-written with Bryan Mealer, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind has already won ringing praise from former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, Paolo Coelho, internationally bestselling author of The Alchemist, and has often been compared to the international bestselling book Three Cups of Tea.

Here is the remarkable story about human inventiveness and its power to overcome crippling adversity. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind will inspire anyone who doubts the power of one individual's ability to change his community and better the lives of those around him, not to mention finding new ways to sustain our earth's resources.

If you are interested in a review copy, please email me your address. To find out more about William, watch this video:
