SocialBusiness.org has done dozens of interviews and the featured social entrepreneurs inspired by reading have cited numerous books that they turn to in order to reset, reboot, recharge and get themselves on their way to be ready for another busy and long day as they start up their own social business or social enterprise. Some of the thinkers here didn't cite books but simply cited reading more generally as a way for them to learn about what's going on in the field at large -- or perhaps they dived into a little fiction in order to get their mind off of things.
Some of these social entrepreneurs inspired by reading, like Barb Stegemann of Dragon's Den, who founded an ethical perfume company called 'The 7 Virtues,' have written books on their own.
