Buffett set out to help the most vulnerable people on earth-nearly a billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard has given himself a deadline: 40 years to put more than $3 billion to work on this challenge. 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World is a new book that captures Howard's journey. Beginning with his love for farming, we join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. It is told in a unique format: 40 stories that will provide readers a compelling look at Howard's lessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth. This book presents a way of thinking that speaks to every person wanting to make a difference. It's a mind-set, providing reasons to hope and actions to take. About new approaches that are desperately needed. 40 Chances provides inspiration to transform each of our limited chances into opportunities to change the world.

    Review quote
    "Whether we are driving his combine in Illinois, meeting with farmers in Guatemala, walking across the border from Mexico to the US, or indulging in our shared loved for Dairy Queen, a day spent with Howard Buffett is one spent learning and laughing. Howard's intellect is only surpassed by the size of his heart. This book will give readers a chance to learn from him in the way that I have and form their own plan for making the most of the 40 Chances we all have."--Eva Longoria, Actress and Philanthropist
