  • A splendid polemic. . . Giridharadas writes brilliantly on the parasitic philanthropy industry

    Economist
  • Trenchant, provocative and well-researched. . . Read it and beware

    Martha Lane Fox, Financial Times Books of the Year
  • Hugely enjoyable. . . A spirited examination of the hypocrisy of the super-rich who claim they are helping the world

    Aditya Chakrabortty, Guardian
  • Entertaining and gripping . . . For those at the helm, the philanthropic plutocrats and aspiring "change agents" who believe they are helping but are actually making things worse, it's time for a reckoning with their role in this spiraling dilemma

    Joseph Stiglitz, New York Times Book Review
  • Giridharadas isn't afraid to speak his mind, even if it means taking down some of the most powerful people on the planet. . . He has started a movement with this scathing critique of a society that rewards monopolistic models, faux philanthropy and protects the interests of a wealthy few

    Tabitha Goldstaub, Forbes
  • A fierce book. . . What gives Giridharadas's heartfelt critique such force is that he is a heretic, someone chosen for the equivalent of the priesthood in the new religion of philanthropy who had a revelation and decided to renounce the faith

    Iain Martin, The Times
