What I'm Reading: Scott Harrison

At the age of 28, Scott Harrison had it all. A top nightclub promoter in New York City, his life was always a party. But 10 years in, he was desperately unhappy and decided to make a change.

In 2006, with no money and less than no experience, Harrison founded charity: water. Today, his organization has raised over $300 million to bring clean drinking water to more than 8.2 million people around the globe. In Thirst, Harrison recounts the twists and turns that built charity: water into one of the most trusted and admired nonprofits in the world.
