Wolf
This is a story of Jim Wolfensohn — President of the World Bank for ten years (1995 to 2005).

for those of you who’d like to learn more about the World Bank, this is a marvelous book … gives you a real insight into one of the world’s most important institution.

you’ll also follow Mr. Wolfensohn — the most prolific Bank President since Robert McNamara … and watch him try to charge a flawed institution. Mallaby also points out Wolfensohn’s own flaws … and how his personality isn’t suited very well to running a large institution.

the book is incredibly well-written and reads easily … it is worth a read if you want to enhance your knowledge of how global poverty can better be transformed.
