I Believe in Zero: Learning from the World’s Children
By Caryl M. Stern (St. Martin’s Press, $26)

As president and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Caryl M. Stern could have used her memoir merely as a platform to promote the work her organization does for children worldwide. (Her book’s title comes from a key UNICEF campaign: zero hunger, zero poverty, zero disease.) But by relaying her tales from the field through the prisms of her faith and her own family’s trials, Stern creates a vivid portrait of the most vulnerable among us and gives a powerful reminder of the hopes, dreams and humanity that unite us all.
