Do Good Well avoids the typical generalized takeaways and overly simplistic "how-to" advice which lacks grounding in a larger context. It delivers instead a winning combination of theory, anecdote, and application that walks you through the process of identifying a problem, developing an action plan, and then executing the plan in a way that will get results."@en ;
