4.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 17 Sept. 2007
This book is spiritually satisfactory indeed but it over-hypes the need for "infinite aid". The ideology of "bigger is better" hardly functions in the African geographical and cultural context.
The millenium development goals (currently being implemented by the UN) backed by the author are superb. I hope that the millenium development villages (the real beneficiaries) being pioneered by the author will be the springboard for the rest of the continent because it tackles the local needs rather than the donors'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very comprehensive outlook of the bottom billion, 17 Sept. 2007
This book unravels the dilemma facing the world poor and proposes potential solutions to unlock the poverty trap. A good read for decision makers who wish to see decent life for all the human race.
The book reiterates the sad fact that public opinion sometimes deviates scientific and/or economic reasoning - think (beyond feeding the hungry, not by emotion) to save the bottom billion . Really a powerful book!
