Socially Responsible Business Books

Socially Responsible BooksPlanning on starting a business or already running one? Here are a great collection of socially responsible business books. Topics range from how to keep more money in your community by local sourcing to tales of companies who have succeeded selling eco-friendly goods. One of the common threads to all of these books is how the owners became successful but not at the expense of others. Business does not have to be a zero-sum game where there are only winners and losers, we can all benefit.
