Product description

Review

Book and man are brilliant, passionate, optimistic and impatient... Outstanding. ("The Economist") If there is any one work to put extreme poverty back onto the global agenda, this is it. ("Publishers Weekly", starred review) Paul Wolfowitz should read Jeffrey Sachs's compelling new book. (Fareed Zakaria, "Newsweek")

"Book and man are brilliant, passionate, optimistic and impatient... Outstanding." The Economist

"If there is any one work to put extreme poverty back onto the global agenda, this is it." Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Paul Wolfowitz should read Jeffrey Sachs s compelling new book." Fareed Zakaria, Newsweek

Professor Sachs has provided a compelling blueprint for eliminating extreme poverty from the world by 2025. Sachs s analysis and proposals are suffused with all the practical experience of his twenty years in the field working in dozens of countries across the globe to foster economic development and well-being. George Soros, financier and philanthropist

"Sachs proposes a many-pronged, needs-based attack...that is eminently practical and minimally pipe-dreamy...A solid, reasonable argument in which the dismal science offers a brightening prospect for the world's poor." Kirkus

"This is an excellent, understandable book on a critical topic and should be required reading for students and participants in public policy as well as those who doubt the problem of world poverty can be solved." Mary Whaley, Booklist

"

"Jeffrey Sachs is that rare phenomenon: an academic economist famous for his theories about why some countries are poor and others rich, and also famous for his successful practical work in helping poor countries become richer. In this long-awaited, fascinating, clearly and movingly written book, he distills his experience to propose answers to the hard choices now facing the world." Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel
