'There are 27 million slaves in the world today'. This fact epitomises what the book successfully conveys from cover to cover. Extensive media coverage has opened our eyes to poverty around the world. However, few would know that the slave trade is still a significant part of society in country's such as Sudan, South Asia and Pakistan.
'Cars kill two people every minute'. A great majority of us spend so much time travelling that this is a terrifying fact. Like many facts in this book, Williams points out shocking statistics that potentially effect our lives on a day-to-day basis.
The fifty facts that Williams uses cleverly implies the shocking inequalities and contradictions evident in every day life. Hopefully, if more people read this 'eye-opener', we will avoid driving into an inevitable moral and social 'cul-de-sac'.
1) More people can identify the Macdonalds logo than the christian cross
2) 10 languages die out every year
3) We're caught on camera upto 300 times a day!
I think Jessica Williams has done an excellent job in writing this book. It's a first step towards factual information and all I can say is "WAKE UP BRITAIN!"
Anyway, the book is a good read but much needs to be done by the author.
