Críticas:

"A powerful read. This book takes you on a journey to discover pure innovation and the unfolding story of a natural genius. A true vision of struggle and tenacity to make a bold idea become a reality. This should be required reading for anyone who dares to dream."--Cameron Sinclair, Eternal Optimist, Architecture for Humanity

"I loved this enchanting story of a humble young hero from an impoverished African village who accomplished a miracle with scrap materials and unstoppable enthusiasm. What an inspiration!"--Mark Frauenfelder, founder of boingboing.net, editor in chief of MAKE

"I was moved first to laughter, and then to tears by William's explanation of how he turned some PVC pipe, a broken bicycle and some long wooden poles into a machine capable of generating sufficient current to power lights and a radio in his parents' house.--Ethan Zuckerman, cofounder, Global Voices

"One of the best books I've ever read."--Mark Frauenfelder, founder of boingboing.net, editor in chief of MAKE

"William Kamkwamba's achievements with wind energy should serve as a model of what one person, with an inspired idea, can do to tackle the crisis we face. His book tells a moving and exciting story."--Al Gore, former Vice President and Nobel Laureate

"A rare and inspiring story of hope in rural Africa....William represents a new generation of Africans, using ingenuity and invention to overcome life's challenges. Where so many tilt at windmills, William builds them!"--Erik Hersman, AfriGadget.com

"William will challenge everything you have thought about Africa, about young people, and about the power of one person to transform a community. This beautifully written book will open your heart and mind. I was moved by William and his story and believe you all will. Essential, powerful and compelling."--Chris Abani, author of Graceland

"An inspiring tale of an African Cheetah--the new generation of young Africans who won't sit and wait for corrupt and incompetent governments--or vampire states-- to come and do things for them. Here is one who harnessed the wind to generate electricity for his village--on his own."--Professor George Ayittey, Distinguished Economist, American University

"The book abounds with themes that resonate deeply: the idea that with hard work and persistence comes triumph; that optimism is not a mental state but a type of action, that from grief and loss can come success."--Nathaniel Whittemore, Change.org

"Beyond opening the door to a nascent genre of African Innovation literature, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind makes excuses about why Africans can't change their fates untenable. This potent, powerful, and uplifting message is the heart of William Kamkwamba's courageous story."--Emeka Okafor, internationally acclaimed author of blogs Timbuktu Chronicles and Africa Unchained

Reseña del editor:

One of the co-authors tells his engaging and inspiring true story of hope, tenacity and imagination, in which as an African teenager he built a windmill from scraps, creating electricity for his village—and a better life for himself and his family. Reprint. 100,000 first printing.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi, a country where magic ruled and modern science was mystery. It was also a land withered by drought and hunger. But William had read about windmills, and he dreamed of building one that would bring to his small village a set of luxuries that only 2 percent of Malawians could enjoy: electricity and running water. His neighbors called him misala--crazy--but William refused to let go of his dreams. With a small pile of once-forgotten science textbooks; some scrap metal, tractor parts, and bicycle halves; and an armory of curiosity and determination, he embarked on a daring plan to forge an unlikely contraption and small miracle that would change the lives around him. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is a remarkable true story about human inventiveness and its power to overcome crippling adversity. It will inspire anyone who doubts the power of one individual s ability to change his community and better the lives of those around him. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAS9780061730337
