In Save the World, Will Marre again inspires us to discover the greatest unrealized possibility of our time: trusting ourselves to live the life of our dreams. An eye-opening must read.

This book is an action plan for learning how to know who you are, what your promise is and how to use what you learn to create a sustainable life for yourself and for everyone on this planet.
