Is there anything you would change about this book?
the narration, I feel like it was a computer and I the ideas where difficult to follow.
How could the performance have been better?
The writer Martha C. Nussbaum should be the narrator, I have hear her voice in podcast is much more engaging.
Any additional comments?
I couldn't finished. Bought the written book instead.

I loved the approach to Sen and development. It is a must read book for anyone in the field of development!
Creating Capabilities is a key text in relation to development and international aid. Nussbaum elaborates on the capabilities approach and the core elements of the approach. She considers and addresses critics of the approach. Nussbaum explains how her views coalesce with those of Amartya Sen, the Nobel prize-winning economist and another key proponent of the capabilities approach, and where they differ. The book is well set out and structured, using the life story of an Indian woman to work through key arguments and elements associated with this approach, as well as attention to each of the proposed 10 core capabilities.
I was surprised at how enjoyable having a key non-fiction text read to me would be... it certainly got digested a lot more quickly than the hard copy version which has been unread on my desk for a couple of years!
