About

It isn’t very often that a book has the power to save a life. Yes, good books can improve lives, shape lives, even change lives. But when was the last time a book literally helped save a life? If you’re reading this page, the answer is right now.

The Domino Project in conjunction with Box of Crayons is working with Malaria No More to help end malaria.

We’re doing this by giving $20 from the purchase of each copy of End Malaria to Malaria No More to send a mosquito net to a family in need and to support life-saving work in the fight against malaria.

In addition to saving lives, buying this book means you can enjoy essays by 62 of America’s favorite business authors, including Tom Peters, Nicholas Carr, Pam Slim, and Sir Ken Robinson. Organized into three main sections—Focus, Courage, and Resilience — all essays in End Malaria share a desire to inspire readers to look within themselves for solutions to their everyday dilemmas and for motivation to realize their desires.

At its core, End Malaria is about doing great work, and at The Domino Project we believe there’s no better work than saving a life. Please share this book with your friends, family, and coworkers, and encourage them to join us on our quest.

    I had malaria when I was in Africa three years ago. It’s BRUTAL. Love the effectiveness of this campaign.

    Any way to get it in other languages? As universal issue is beeing addressed, it will deserve it!!

  • Pamela Bruner

    I clicked to buy, and had an issue – whether to buy hardcopy or Kindle? Then I realized – if I bought one of each, it would just double the contribution.
    Great idea, huh?

    Love the project, we’re writing about it & spreading the word. Is there somewhere I can make an additional donation? There are only so many copies of the paperback I actually need.

    People have had close to a 100% success rate curing Malaria, usually in a few hours via MMS : http://www.mmshealthyforlife.com/?cat=97

    We so often find our mind under our behind, afraid to come out and find inspiration, imagination and the daring to do! I hope this reaches millions willing to do more than read…
    The real act of faith is more than talk.

    Congrats on a Great Idea.
    Hope it is well implemented!

  • Rob Bul

    I would love to buy the book but have to pay double the amount to have it delivered in reasonable time in The Netherlands. Is Amazon the only way to buy?

  • http://williejackson.com/ Willie Jackson

    Amazon only right now, yes.

  • IdeaSparker

    Would LOVE to see an Ipad version.  Any chance that will be coming in the near future?

    Very unlikely, sorry.

    So why are you not campaigning for use of DDT throughout the areas affected by Malaria? This and campaigns for political and economic freedom, to encourage development, are the surest ways of addressing Malaria.

  • Ben

     DDT is poisonous. So Malaria = people die; DDT = people die. Net result = 0.

  • Anonymous

    No it’s not.

    So malaria = people die
    DDT = people don’t die
    Net result  = several million

    Rachel Carson is responsible for more human deaths than any other person in history, for the lies she spread about DDT.

  • RichC

    if you’re 18 then your comments are understandable, if not then there’s no excuse for your comments.  Either way, educate yourself about DDT from all angles and let your logic dictate what’s real about DDT.

    Sorry, but I only look from one angle: the scientific evidence. I am a science graduate, you see, and that is what I took from my degree.

    I don’t look from the direction of the “environmentalists”, who are so often willing to sacrifice people, animals and even the environment they claim to protect for their anti-scientific ideology.

    You do realise, don’t you, that the scientific report for Congress on DDT recommended that its use continue? It was politics that condemned it. Me, I follow science before politics.

    There is no scientific evidence that DDT harms humans. There is no evidence that it ever harmed bald eagles. Silent Spring was a political diatribe based on lies and bad science.

    Even now, especially now, our support can help, does help. Dig in people.
