Review

"Singer's argument is powerful, provocative and, I think, basically right. The world would be a better place if we were as tough-minded in how we donate money as in how we make it."--Nicholas Kristof, New York Times
"We need thinkers such as Singer to test our intuitions. . . . The encouraging message is that we do have the resources to be better. . . . This requires foremost that we believe in the goodness of others. So reading these powerful new books on the existence of altruism could be the first step to making the world a nicer place."--Stephen Cave, Financial Times
"Singer's book is bold, fresh, inspired, reasoned, optimistic. Read it and grow your brain."--Walter M. Bortz II, MD, Huffington Post Blog
"In The Most Good You Can Do, Singer lays out a rationale for effective altruism - and a provocative defense of a movement he hopes will spread . . . Singer opens up worthwhile conversations (and practical applications) related to ethical ideals."--Glenn C. Altschuler, Philadelphia Inquirer
"In a world getting ever wealthier and more unequal, a book about effective altruism is overdue. What can you be doing-- realistically, practically, today--to make the world a better place? No one has thought harder about this question than Peter Singer, and he answers it with his characteristic clarity and persuasiveness."--Elie Hassenfeld and Holden Kamofsky Co-Founders and Co-Executive Directors of the Open Philanthropy Project
"Peter Singer is one of the most important thinkers of our time, and this is his most important book. Through the stories of those in the nascent effective altruism movement, he provides clear guidance on what it means to live an ethical life in the face of the world's many problems. From charity to career choice to consumerism, this book will revolutionize how you think about doing good."--Will MacAskill, author of Doing Good Better: Effective Altruism and How You Can Make a Difference
"Provocative and important. . . .The Most GoodYou Can Do is a delight to read--Singer is a deep thinker and a wonderfully clear writer, moving smoothly from careful philosophical analyses to vivid stories of extraordinary lives. And even if you are not persuaded that effective altruism is the way to become a better--and happier--person, you will find yourself deeply unsettled by Singer's provocative claims about poverty, climate change, animals, art, rationality, and much else."--Paul Bloom, author of Just Babies
"From the time of his 1972 paper "Famine, Affluence, and Morality," Peter Singer has argued that we should be giving more to alleviate global suffering than we usually do. In this new book, Singer introduces us to people who are giving much more and are having fun doing it, and shows us just how easy it is to make a positive difference in the world."--Lori Gruen, author of Ethics and Animals: An Introduction
"Read Peter Singer at your own peril. His arguments about animal welfare and vegetarianism have moved millions to change their lives. The Most GoodYou Can Do will challenge you to consider how your donations, career choices, and everyday life decisions can maximize good in the world."--Rob Reich, Stanford University
