This is an excellent book and a key overview of the current state of development economics. I only rate it a 3 for personal reasons - I took a year-long development economics course and have actually read much of the literature cited in the book, so none of it was news to me. Since I had a basic knowledge of the subject, it felt a bit repetitive to me so failed to keep my interest for long. However, for those who have not studied development/behavioral economics, it is an excellent read and overview!
