cover of Small Business, Big Heart by Paul Wesslund

There is nothing so welcome and effective as a good review from someone who actually read the book–not only read it, but engaged with it deeply. This review of Grammarwitch client Paul Wesslund’s Small Business, Big Heart is just that sort of review.

“In the midst of a global health crisis—the worst we’ve seen in generations—and while we struggle as a country, as a people, to find our footing morally and culturally during a reductio ad absurdum political creep show, Small Business BIG HEART lands as a corrective, a balm to soothe frayed nerves and intemperate minds. That is not to say that this big-hearted book is pablum. No, the stories it brings are all too real—people who often have lost their way through drugs, alcohol, and bad choices; refugees who have fled horrific circumstances and are looking only to start a new life but can’t due to the stigma of being different; and one family in particular that is faced with its own dissolution as well as the loss of its dream of a thriving family business. The high-stakes rollercoaster ride that journalist Paul Wesslund takes us on is dizzying not only for its incredible highs and sometimes tragic lows, but also because it introduces a concept too often forgotten … no, disregarded … in modern business life—what corporate governance experts would call “the duty of CARE.”

And it gets better from here. To read the rest of the review, follow the link –and then ask for this extraordinary book at your favorite local or online bookstore.
