If you had the resources to accomplish something great in the world, what would you do?
Legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son in 2006, when he announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune to philanthropy. So, Howard G. 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.
Each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our goals in life. Howard learned this lesson through his passion for farming: All farmers can expect to have about 40 growing seasons, giving them just 40 chances to improve on every harvest. This lesson applies to all of us, however, because we all have about 40 productive years to do the best job we can, whatever our passions may be.
Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World is a book that captures Howard's journey. 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 listeners a compelling look at Howard's lessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth.

In a sweeping new book, farmer, humanitarian, businessman, politician, photographer and risk-taker, Howard G. Buffett, founder and president of the philanthropic organization which bears his name, Howard G. Buffett Foundation, has laid out a determined road-map with an objective of ending hunger and poverty for the world's nearly one billion persistently disadvantaged populaces by 2045. Howard G. Buffett has chalked out a plan to invest more than $3 billion in a gamble to find answers to confront global food and water security issues. Buffett's new book, 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World, written with his son Howard W. Buffett, is a historic account of their journey to explore new approaches to help the world's most vulnerable people. Howard G. Buffett and Howard W. Buffett share their ideas and thoughts on the current global food security challenges and present opportunities for all to participate in their pursuit to end global hunger.
40 Chances is more than a book. It's a message with five empowering principles we can use every day:
Principle No. 1 - Roots: Seize opportunities that excite you, even if they start out seemingly small.
Principle No. 2 - Bravery: From time to time, you've got to do something you don't necessarily know how to do.
Principle No. 3 - Lessons: Harvest the right lessons and don't fear mistakes; grow from each of your efforts.
Principle No. 4 - Challenges: Sometimes our resources and expertise do not match the needs of a given situation, so we have to be adaptable.
Principle No. 5 - Hope: Make the most of your 40 Chances today, while preparing for the future - know that you're spending your chances wisely.
In life you only have about 40 productive years to make an impact on the world.
Poverty and health problems can create an amazing reason to feel down, look at negatives and give up. The recession proved daily that life simply bears down too hard for many of us to take another hopeful step forward.
In the midst of economic and leadership struggles we admire folks like Howard and Warren Buffett who spot solutions and toss talent, promise and resources into leading innovative change.
We're drawn to those who guide the most vulnerable among us into a finer place. We find such inspiration page-after-page in Howard Buffett's inspiring new book, "Forty Chances."
We read first hand here, how to hone hope into state-of-the-art tools. From the first narrative we hear the clock ticking with the Buffets, who begin to build optimism by reshaping prosperity for those who've all but given up. Those who recognize the human brain's proclivity to progress, will also spot dozens of ways in this classic volume to act simply - and persist successfully - on the other side of loss.
Regardless of challenges we all face in tough climates of loss and change we find doable inspiration to move forward. With each bare-boned story of struggle we dip into what Buffet shows to be brilliant brainpower for the worst of times.
Here at the Mita International Brain Center, we've admired the integrity, care and forward thinking genius that exists in the Buffett family. Yet this book shows a unique compassion for those left at the fringes as our fast paced advancements too often tread down on the most vulnerable among us.
Rather than live above heart-wrenching difficulties that so many face daily in their struggle to feed families or get well, the Buffets become the change they seek. Bravo!
