it was ok

For some reason, I found myself plodding through this book- and I can't quite put my finger on why. Lots of good stuff here with anecdotes and links to myriad organizations one can support.

I don't think that he said enough about giving that comes with strings. One of the reasons India at one point forsook aid form the US is that it came with too many strings attached. The aid requires that countries use the monies to purchase supplies from american companies, often at not the best rates. All this in an effort to keep that money back in the US- which is not totally altruistic.
