THE HOUSE THAT LOVE BUILT: The Story of Millard and Linda Fuller, Founders of Habitat For Humanity and the Fuller Center For Housing by Dr. Bettie B. Youngs

I know there must be those who do not know about Habitat For Humanity and all of the wonderful homes that the organization has built for millions of the world's poor. It has to be where the idea for the reality home makeover show came from. It never occurred to me that an organization of this magnitude could have started with two individuals. It really blew my mind. Things change over time, as they have a tendency to do, and the beloved nonprofit Linda and Mallard Fuller had founded fired them. Nonprofit boards can be fickle! This was certainly not the end of the vision and the Fuller Center For Housing was born.

This is an interesting and surprising book. If you enjoy biography, you will find this book fascinating.
