it was amazing
Read from December 16 to 29, 2011

This book is purely amazing - insightful and fair from beginning to end, it was very hard to figure out if the writers were expressing any opinions, or just obvious statements of fact coming from their years of experience and empirical research.

This book isn't just about Aid, but also about human nature and helped me identify when I make irrational decisions in my life. This enabled me to better understand the poor described in this book who are living on less than 99c a day.

Definitely recommend this book.
