Just a terrific book about the challenges of poverty across the globe. Offers insightful analysis and realistic solutions. Be warned however, that other authors have recently dismissed Sach's prescription of pouring money into the problem, and presented some alternatives.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
An acceptable book that often moves back and forth from Economics to a call to pressure those in power to increase funding for the third world, but don't be fooled, the latter is very much the point of the book.
If you are a fan of Noam Chomsky you'll love this book, if you are a fan of Economics, but have a socially conscious perspective then read Muhammad Yunus instead.
The foreword is by Bono, so while you may be in the deep end, you certainly know which pool you are jumping into.
What didn’t you like about Malcolm Hilgartner’s performance?
There are some editing mistakes which is why I gave such a low score for performance, but otherwise the book is fine.
