Wonderwell to Publish Inspirational Book from Social Entrepreneur Madeleine Shaw
We’re pleased to announce that we will be publishing social entrepreneur Madeleine Shaw’s first book. The Greater Good is scheduled to be released under Wonderwell’s Best Book program on October 5, 2021.
The Greater Good is a 21st century call to action for everyday people—particularly women and others who have traditionally been excluded from the mainstream business community—to tap their unique perspectives to create social impact ventures.
Groundbreaking menstrual health innovator Madeleine Shaw (cofounder of Aisle—previously known as Lunapads) presents an inspiring look at the inner journey behind creating businesses and initiatives that make a difference.
In addition to sharing frank insights from her own career, she highlights the journeys of many of her peers, and in so doing surfaces an emerging movement—a movement that may be the driver of a more just and sustainable future. Dispelling the myth that you need a business degree or a blockbuster tech idea to change the world, Shaw guides readers in mining their own experience and passion to forge a unique and personal vision for the greater good.
The book will be available for sale in bookstores across North America and via online retailers on October 5, 2021.
