Very helpful for understanding why aid does or does not work. Studies back up points made and suggest how results could could be applied elsewhere.

There is a lot in this book that that dispels many assumptions people have about poverty. Another good book is the Bottom Billion by Paul Collier

Very solid, easy to use. Not a lot to say about a paper cutter, is there. Having decided on this one, I wouldn't buy anything else.
