it was amazing
Read in August, 2011

This was one probably one of the top 5 nonfiction books that I've read. It was well-written, enjoyable, consistently interesting. The authors look at Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) in development policy over the past decade or two, a field that they have been intimately involved in. Their findings are educational and useful. They cover several different topics, which keeps the book from getting repetitive (always a danger in policy-type books). And they are pragmatic, rather than dogmatic, which makes their conclusions much more believable. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in policy.
