Description (required)

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)
“Singers 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)
From the Author
In a nutshell, what is effective altruism and how does it differ from
ordinary charitable giving?
Effective altruism is both an emerging movement and the set of ideas
behind that movement. The basic idea is that to live a fully ethical
life, we should seek to do the most good we can. To discover what will
do the most good, we need to use reason and evidence. In contrast,
two-thirds of donors to charity do no research at all into the
organizations to which they donate—they are moved by images that play
on their emotions, but give no indication whether the organization is
effective at what it claims to be doing.
Aren’t we all, at the core, self-interested?
The book introduces readers to many of the men and women who are
practicing effective altruism. What they are doing will startle many
readers—choosing their careers so that they can donate more, and
donating half their incomes to effective charities. Yet typically they
don’t think of themselves as making a sacrifice. They find their lives
more rewarding than they were before they made these choices. So it may
not be a question of denying self-interest, but of a different
understanding of what really is in one’s own interests.

Can effective altruism change the world?

I find the stories I tell in this book immensely encouraging. There are
not many effective altruists yet, but they are already changing the
world, and their impact is growing.
