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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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
5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
