Reader recommendation: Last Stand

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I recently picked up Todd Wilkinson's new book, Last Stand: Ted Turner's Quest to Save a Troubled Planet. What an eye opener. I knew Ted Turner was preserving large tracts of land around the country, and, of course, I know about his reputation for having quite a mouth on him. Wilkinson reveals a lot about Turner's upbringing and what lead him to his amazing philanthropic, environmental, and humanitarian projects that are utilizing his wealth to do good in our world. It's an unapologetic picture of Turner and a fascinating read.
