“Doing Good Better” is an excellent introduction to effective altruism, and may well change how you give your money and live your life.
Effective Altruism New Zealand Charitable Trust has copies of the book to giveaway to people, with the intention that they read the book, then pass it on to an interested friend, family member or colleague when they have finished reading.
“Superb. This must-read book will lead people to change their careers, their lives, and the world for the better” – Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University.
“Beautifully written and extremely smart. Doing Good Better should be required reading for anyone interested in making the world better”– Steven Levitt, University of Chicago economist and author of Freakonomics.
William MacAskill is a Professor of Philosophy at Lincoln College, Oxford, and was integral in the creation of the effective altruism movement.
