Title: Gives hope that there are still people who care about the world . . .
Content: I was intrigued by this book after I'd heard an interview with the writer on a podcast. I'm still in the midst of reading it but have found it fascinating to read about what it actually takes to propel big change in the world. In particular, the time, patience and even sometimes handing over of projects for others to continue to see through. I do find this is an increasing challenge for some people to fathom today. There's the sense that solutions to major world problems can/should happen quickly with sometimes little sense that those who are being helped, need to be part of determining solutions. There's also often a sense of ownership of projects or constantly starting something new without working with resources that are established. This book really goes through real life global problems like natural disaster relief, Ebola, electricity poverty, etc. and the strategies needed to effectively help, as well as the mistakes that are at times made. It's inspiring to read how much work, negotiating, listening and innovating that happens in trying to help people in need. Provides some hope for humanity amongst a sea of pessimism and division that the world seems to find itself in currently.

Title: Remarkably insightful book
Content: Raj Shah’s ‘Big Bets’ is an insightfully good book full of good observations and principles useful to use in the pursuit of progress and for any walk of life you happen to be. It is a simple read, but tied to contemporary big challenges that have affected many people but who had the fortune of Shah being in the right place at the right time to bring his talents to the table and tip the balance towards practical solutions that brought significant relief to those who needed it. The practical advice given through all chapters reflects a confident ‘can do’ mind set but is not bragging or overbearing. Shah’s motives seem genuinely driven by his desire to make life better for as many as can be possibly done by what he and whomever he can partner persuade to join in with him. If you highlight points make that cause you to think, then by the time you are finished reading the book, you will have compiled a list of heuristists to refer back to as you take your actions to go ‘all in’ with what you have to make your big bets.

Title: Do you want to have an impact on the world? Read this.
Content: This book is a guide for making a difference on the big issues we face globally. It is perfect for every young person who is interested in taking on the big challenges like climate change, poverty, education. It provides lessons on how to be effective -- from finding unusual partners, to intensely focusing on measurement and results, and being aggressive about pivoting your strategy when data indicates it. Raj Shah is a remarkable person who has had an real impact in the world at an early age. He graduated medical school but pursued a career in public policy, in politics, in childhood immunization efforts at a non-profit, and in government directing US aid efforts around the Haiti earthquake. Now, as the leader of the Rockefeller Foundation, he has taken on issues like Covid testing efforts with great success. This book is also an autobiography as well as a guide, and illustrates the choices and compromises an optimist who wants to have an impact must make. It is of interest to every reader who wants to engage and succeed in Washington and in the world.

Title: Inspiring book for those seeking the biggest challenges of our time
Content: I found the stories in Big Bets fascinating because it gave me an authentic view into a world of philanthropy and politics. It’s amazing how much one person can accomplish when they can gain alignment from such disparate organizations. Of course, Raj Shah’s skill in seeking solutions to big problems coupled with his passion for the work contributes to his success in this world. I was surprised at the magnitude of the problems he sought to solve. For example, the goal to immunize every child on the planet is a phenomenally difficult goal when you consider the number of organizations required to participate in the project. Raj provides insight into the approach. I was also struck by Raj’s transparency in writing. He talks openly about his family and his family’s immigrant experience. Finally, the chapter ending lessons reminded me of core characteristics and skills we all need if we want to tackle such challenges.

Title: Practical and Inspiring
Content: This is an upfront look at how big change has happened in the last few decades by someone who was on the front lines through it all. I appreciate the distillation of themes to really get at how any of us can make bigger bets and get people to join us. I realized reading it that I tend to be too practical early in my planning, and it was inspiring to see how making a bigger bet actually helps people join your efforts. I bought several copies to give to friends and colleagues after reading it!
