Kurzbeschreibung

The riveting story of how a young man turned $25 into more than 200 schools around the world and the guiding steps anyone can take to lead a successful and significant life.

Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just sixteen years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling he met a young boy begging on the streets of India, who after being asked what he wanted most in the world, simply answered, “A pencil.” This small request led to a staggering series of events that took Braun backpacking through dozens of countries before eventually leaving one of the world’s most prestigious jobs to found Pencils of Promise, the organization he started with just $25 that has since built more than 200 schools around the world.

The Promise of a Pencil chronicles Braun’s journey to find his calling, as each chapter explains one clear step that every person can take to turn your biggest ambitions into reality, even if you start with as little as $25. His story takes readers behind the scenes with business moguls and village chiefs, world-famous celebrities and hometown heroes. Driven by compelling stories and shareable insights, this is a vivid and inspiring book that will give you the tools to make your own life a story worth telling.

*All proceeds from this book will support Pencils of Promise.

In the last three years no book managed to touch me as deeply as “The Promise of a Pencil” by Adam Braun. It made me re-evaluate my life, the choices I made, the person I am and the person I want to become. It opened my eyes to the importance of education. Because it's true, education is everything. I've struggled with motivation for a long time just as many other students but with my final exams approaching fast and deciding what to do with my future this book really was an eye-opener.

I have been a fan of Sophia Bush for a very long time and I've always found here to be very encouraging, motivating and eye-opening. She was the one who made me get a further education, to make something out of my life. And she was the one who draw my attention to this amazing organisation. She introduced me to Pencil of Promise and by that she introduced me to Nith and Nuth and all those other children Adam and his organisation helped. When I bought this book I didn't think it would hold what it promised just because there have been so many books before this one and none of them affected me in that ‘Oh my god I really want to shout the name of the book on the top of my lungs from my roof and tell everyone about it’ way. But I was in for a massive surprise.

And by buying the book I made sure a child could recieve education for one day. Which is kinda crazy if you ask me. That something so small can do so much.

If you ask me this book is a must read for every person, no matter what age, who want to be the change in the world they want to see. Who want to do something that matters and help a child.

Thank you to Sophia and Adam for opening my eyes, for giving me something that I have missed for a very long time; passion. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Adam Braun has not only created an amazing organisation in Pencils of Promise, but he has also managed to tell his story and his WHY in a beautiful, exciting and well written way. You get pulled in as a travel companion following his journey and his extraordinary meetings with people along his travels, and how he takes his first steps in creating possibilities for young children to get schooling. Thank you Adam for inviting us in to your life and joining your mission.

I really loved the book and it was probably one of the best books I've read this year. Adam Braun's story is exciting as well as inspiring throughout the book but he never looses touch to the ground. Instead he inspired me too and made me realize that everyone can do change. As well I love all the work at PoP.

I've always been a fan of Adam Braun's organization Pencils Of Promise, so when his book came out I immediately felt the need to read it and I was very touched not only by how much he is doing for others, but also by how much he shares with you about his family and personal life. He tells the story of how and why PoP was founded in such a personal way, you just don't want to stop reading it. This is a very good book about an important issue in this world so I would definitely reccommend it to everyone out there! I hope a lot of people all over the world will read this book and realize how important education and giving back is !!
