Hi All
Any political/history buffs on the list? I scanned a book called The end of 
poverty. It's over 400 pages. Clean scan but I honestly don't have the patience 
for it. My friend who is not on bookshare asked for it and she needed it for a 
class. I'd love to submit it but I am not one to submit raw scans without a 
dedicated editor/validator. Anyone interested?
Thanks to anyone who is willing to edit.

country's economic challenges and the options it faces. He leads readers along 
the same learning path he himself followed, telling the stories of his own work 
in Bolivia, Poland, Russia, India, China, and Africa as a way to bring readers 
with him to a deep understanding of the challenges faced by developing 
countries in different parts of the world. Finally, he offers an integrated set 
of solutions to the interwoven economic, political, environmental, and social 
problems that most challenge the world's poorest societies and, indeed, the
