McCurdy wastes neither time nor words to make his point; his fifty reasons to volunteer are presented in brief paragraphs that strike at the heart of the subject. Readers soon learn that, while strategic volunteering may accelerate one’s social impact and increase one’s value to potential employers, it is not just about one’s work life.
