The riveting story of how a young man turned $25 into more than 200 schools around the world and the guiding steps
anyone can take to lead a successful and significant life.
Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just sixteen years old, sprinting down the path to a
successful Wall Street career. But while traveling he met a young boy begging on the streets of India, who after being
asked what he wanted most in the world, simply answered, “A pencil.” This small request led to a staggering series of
events that took Braun backpacking through dozens of countries before eventually leaving one of the world’s most
prestigious jobs to found Pencils of Promise, the organization he started with just $25 that has since built more than
200 schools around the world.
The Promise of a Pencil chronicles Braun’s journey to find his calling, as each chapter explains one clear step that
every person can take to turn your biggest ambitions into reality, even if you start with as little as $25. His story
takes readers behind the scenes with business moguls and village chiefs, world-famous celebrities and hometown heroes.
Driven by compelling stories and shareable insights, this is a vivid and inspiring book that will give you the tools to
make your own life a story worth telling.
