Innovation Africa by Olugbenga Adesida, Geci Karuri-Sebina and Joaao Resende-Santos (eds.)


A review found Innovation Africa: Emerging Hubs of Excellence not only illustrates "Africa’s experience with innovation to date but also point[s] to its power for transformation. From the very onset, one is reminded that 'Africa is no longer the place it was in the past … the technological innovations taking place on the continent today offer the promise of transforming African countries from trading mainly in materials and commodities to trading in knowledge-intensive products.'".
A Sociological Approach to Health Determinants by Toni Schofield

A review found the book "is a timely and useful book, using what the author describes as a sociological approach. The book certainly has the potential to deepen our insights into the social phenomenon of health as presented by the social determinants of health research literature."

A Survey of Country Office Web Sites April 2000 (United Nations)


Mongolia, at the time, was in the grip of "the biggest peacetime, post-WWII economic collapse." Yet despite the many obstacles, Mongolia's pioneering online publishing projects inspired others. After this project, I went on to successfully launch a pioneering e-health web portal for Britain's top children's hospital. Award-winning, it was called one of the "most admired" public sector websites in the UK at the time (2001 to 2003).
