More About the Author

Danny Dorling has lived all his life in England. To try to counter his myopic world view, in 2006, Danny started working with a group of researchers on a project to remap the world (www.worldmapper.org). He has published with many colleagues more than a dozen books on issues related to social inequalities in Britain and several hundred journal papers. Much of this work is available open access (see www.dannydorling.org). His work concerns issues of housing, health, employment, education and poverty. Before a career in academia Danny was employed as a play-worker in children's play-schemes where the underlying rationale was that playing is learning for living. He tries not to forget this. He is an Academician of the Academy of the Learned Societies in the Social Sciences and, in 2008, became Honorary President of the Society of Cartographers. In 2011 he became a patron of the charity Roadpeace.

Product Description

Review

"Drawing unpretentiously on anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, politics and history, Danny Dorling shows not only why equality is good for everyone at every stage of life as well as for society, but also illustrates the enormous costs and inefficiency of maintaining inequality. This straighforward, conversational, hopeful and evidence-based book is a winner." - Susan George, political scientist, author and fellow of the Transnational Institute. "An approachable compilation of statistics and historical arguments showing that more equality makes everyone happier, healthier, and 'more able'." - Steven Poole, The Guardian. "A fabulous introduction to a new way of thinking about equality and inequality." Bob Abramms, ODTmaps.com, Amherst MA

This is an excellent if brief outline which helps the reader understand what the "good society" is and how it might be achieved.

Regretfully, this is a bit of a boring rant, in spite of the review in the Economist, author seems the kind of person who is congenitally dissatisfied with the world and feels that people a have no responsibility for their own progress and achievement. It ignores spiritual growth.

Compelling arguments that will have you question every assumption you held to be true. 24 Jun. 2012
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Compelling arguments that will have you question every assumption you held to be true.
A fabulous introduction to a new way of thinking about equality and inequality...and the forces that allow gross inequalities to exist. Charts, graphs, and tables that make it clear that the "rules of the game" in economics and politics MUST be rewritten for the mental and physical well-being of all.
--- Bob Abramms, ODTmaps.com, Amherst MA
The only book you need for General Class 19 Mar. 2013
By Anthony L. Dewitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I downloaded your No-Nonsense book for the General Exam and wished I had your book when I took the Tech exam. I am now working on the Extra. I am hopeful your book will get me there. You turned out some great products and I tell everyone who is now in the General Class at the club that they should download your Kindle book and read it if they want to pass. Most books either provide too much detail or not enough. Your book fills that gap.
