Rodman’s Ride and Other Stories of Giving chronicles the life of Massachusetts Ford dealer Don Rodman and his journey from a hand-to-mouth existence as a boy in Dorchester to his life as a leader of philanthropy. Part memoir, part “how-to,” Rodman’s Ride reveals how Don became an “agent of change” and developed a charitable entity that maximizes the reach and impact of giving. This title also includes the accounts and stories of giving of many in Don’s circle—colleagues and friends like Jack Connors, Bobby Orr, Karen Kaplan and Larry Bird—as well as tips for aspiring philanthropists.
