  • Daringly conceived, brilliantly executed - may change not just how you see the world, but how you live in it

    Katherine Boo, author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers
  • Chilling and utterly absorbing... Combining critical analysis with compassion, the book's treatment is reminiscent of Oliver Sacks, who explored the more extraordinary aspects of ordinary lives

    Frances Wilson, Daily Telegraph

    Financial Times
  • A brilliant and rigorous thinker... As a book on altruism, this is also a book that invites us to think about selfishness - she's good on Adam Smith and Darwin, among many others
