“For all the joy we receive from serving others less fortunate, for all the happiness we each gain from the friends we make in Rotary, those rewards can be multiplied if we bring in new members.  Frank Talk is a refreshing, entertaining book that goes a long way toward that goal.  It shows readers why we joined Rotary, and why we stay.  It shows non-Rotarians the inner satisfaction we Rotarians get from serving others, because no matter what our race, creed or religion, to Rotarians, ‘Mankind is our Business’.”
