    John Shine

The first 14 years of the 21st century have been steeped in doom and gloom. Everyone is talking about the huge and insoluble problems facing mankind.

How will we feed 9 billion people? Tackle climate change? Rein in obesity? Overcome economic crises? Eliminate AIDS? Build more inclusive societies?

But who will provide the solutions?

In this book we introduce you to 36 extraordinary individuals who are addressing and resolving all of these issues.  They come from all continents and 18 nations. They come from all walks of life, and they operate in all spheres of human endeavour.

We call them überpreneurs.
