Críticas:

"Read Peter Singer at your own peril. His arguments about animal welfare and vegetarianism have moved millions to change their lives. The Most Good You Can Do will challenge you to consider how your donations, career choices, and everyday life decisions can maximize good in the world."-Rob Reich, Stanford University -- Rob Reich "In a world getting ever wealthier and more unequal, a book about effective altruism is overdue. What can you be doing- realistically, practically, today-to make the world a better place? No one has thought harder about this question than Peter Singer, and he answers it with his characteristic clarity and persuasiveness."-Elie Hassenfeld and Holden Kamofsky Co-Founders and Co-Executive Directors of the Open Philanthropy Project -- Elie Hassenfeld and Holden Kamofsky "Peter Singer is one of the most important thinkers of our time, and this is his most important book. Through the stories of those in the nascent effective altruism movement, he provides clear guidance on what it means to live an ethical life in the face of the world's many problems. From charity to career choice to consumerism, this book will revolutionize how you think about doing good."-Will MacAskill, author of Doing Good Better: Effective Altruism and How You Can Make a Difference -- Will MacAskill "Provocative and important ... The Most Good You Can Do is a delight to read-Singer is a deep thinker and a wonderfully clear writer, moving smoothly from careful philosophical analyses to vivid stories of extraordinary lives. And even if you are not persuaded that effective altruism is the way to become a better-and happier-person, you will find yourself deeply unsettled by Singer's provocative claims about poverty, climate change, animals, art, rationality, and much else."-Paul Bloom, author of Just Babies -- Paul Bloom "From the time of his 1972 paper "Famine, Affluence, and Morality," Peter Singer has argued that we should be giving more to alleviate global suffering than we usually do. In this new book, Singer introduces us to people who are giving much more and are having fun doing it, and shows us just how easy it is to make a positive difference in the world."-Lori Gruen, author of Ethics and Animals: An Introduction -- Lori Gruen "Singer's inspiring book challenges us all to take it up a notch in thinking about our giving. Reading this book can change your life; acting on this book can improve the lives of others. -Dean Karlan, author of More Than Good Intentions and President of Innovations for Poverty Action -- Dean Karlan "An outstanding resource for any donor looking to have an outsized impact on the world."-Cari Tuna, President, Good Ventures -- Cari Tuna "Peter Singer is the world's most influential living philosopher, and this may be his most influential book-an inspiring and practical guide to living ethically in an age of unmatched opportunity. You cannot escape its pull." -Joshua Greene, author of Moral Tribes -- Joshua Greene "Peter Singer makes a compelling ethical argument for 'effective altruism' as a way of life. By giving of our time and resources in a thoughtful and significant way, each of us has the power to save lives and make the world a better place."-Lauren Bush Lauren, CEO and Founder of FEED -- Lauren Bush Lauren "Singer makes a strong case for a simple idea-that each of us has a tremendous opportunity to help others with our abilities, time and money. The Most Good You Can Do is an optimistic and compelling look at the positive impact that giving can have on the world."-Bill and Melinda Gates, co-chairs of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation -- Bill Gates

Reseña del editor:

Peter Singer's books and ideas have been disturbing our complacency ever since the appearance of Animal Liberation. Now he directs our attention to a challenging new movement in which his own ideas have played a crucial role: effective altruism. Effective altruism is built upon the simple but profoundly unsettling idea that living a fully ethical life involves doing the "most good you can do." Such a life requires a rigorously unsentimental view of charitable giving: to be a worthy recipient of our support, an organization must be able to demonstrate that it will do more good with our money or our time than other options open to us. Singer introduces us to an array of remarkable people who are restructuring their lives in accordance with these ideas, and shows how, paradoxically, living altruistically often leads to greater personal fulfillment than living for oneself. Doing the Most Good develops the challenges Singer has made, in the New York Times and Washington Post, to those who donate to the arts, and to charities focused on helping our fellow citizens, rather than those for whom we can do the most good. Effective altruists are extending our knowledge of the possibilities of living less selfishly, and of allowing reason, rather than emotion, to determine how we live. Doing the Most Good offers new hope for our ability to tackle the world's most pressing problems.
