For those of you who have already read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind I hope some of my posts have provided you with some “food for thought” about various themes in the book. If you haven’t read it yet, I hope my posts have piqued your interest in the book. Most readers that I have spoken with, who have read the book, found it truly inspirational. It’s been a pleasure to have been your Bookster host for March. For further reading you may be interested in the following CADL books:
- Banker to the Poor: Micro-lending and the Battle Against World Poverty by Muhammad Yunus
- Build Your Own Small Wind Power System by Kevin Shea and Brian Clark Howard.
- Electronics Demystified by Stan Gibilisco
- Enough: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty by Roger Thurow and Scott Kilman.
- Wind Energy Basics: A Guide to Home and Community-scale Wind Energy Systems by Paul Gipe
- Zambia & Malawi (Lonely Planet) by Alan Murphy, Nana Luckham, Nicola Simmonds.
Also many things have change since the book was published in 2009. The author, William Kamkwamba now attends Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Enjoy this interview with him.
