Review quote

Book and man are brilliant, passionate, optimistic and impatient... Outstanding. ("The Economist") If there is any one work to put extreme poverty back onto the global agenda, this is it. ("Publishers Weekly", starred review) Paul Wolfowitz should read Jeffrey Sachs's compelling new book. (Fareed Zakaria, "Newsweek")
