"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

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.
