What UB is Reading

Book image

“Start Something that Matters” by Blake Mycoskie is the 2012 UB Reads selection—an opportunity for the campus community to enjoy a shared reading experience. Mycoskie created TOMS, one of the fastest-growing footwear companies in the world, by giving shoes away. He offers readers stories, ideas and practical tips for finding profit, passion and meaning all at once. (Spiegel & Grau, 2012)
