The Other Wes Moore left its Baltimore author on the eve of his departure for Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. In his new book, Moore recounts the lessons learned from travel and study, from the battlefields of Afghanistan, the Bush White House, the first Obama presidential campaign—and even a stint in Wall Street banking. As his experiences teach him to think of work as a kind of mission, Moore completes the circle, returning to Baltimore where he applies his wisdom and compassion to effecting lasting change.
