Forty Chances

Finding Hope in a Hungry World


If you had the resources to accomplish something great inthe world, what would you do?

Legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge tohis son in 2006, when he announced he was leaving the bulk of his fortune tophilanthropy. So, Howard G. Buffett set out to help the most vulnerable people on Earth—nearlya billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard has givenhimself a deadline: forty years to put more than $3 billion to work on thischallenge.

Each of us has about forty chances to accomplish our goalsin life. Howard learned this lesson through his passion for farming: all farmerscan expect to have about forty growing seasons, giving them just forty chancesto improve on every harvest. This lesson applies to all of us, however, becausewe all have about forty productive years to do the best job we can, whateverour passions may be.

Forty Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World is abook that captures Howard’s journey. We join him around the world as he seeksout new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. It is told in a uniqueformat: forty stories that will provide readers a compelling look at Howard’slessons learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficultand dangerous places on Earth.
