Condition: Used: Very Good. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. With the title of this book, and the sensationalist subtitle An insider reveals how good intentions have failed the world's poor, I was certainly expecting a scathing critique of the entire aid industry. Something following the views of William Easterly or Dambisa Moyo, who criticize the entire set up and almost call for complete overhaul.

A fascinating read for anyone who has wondered why Africa continues to lag behind the rest of the world. Bolton makes compelling arguments.
Dianazius
This is an excellent book. I worked for an NGO in Southern Africa. This book very accurately describes some of the problems and it focuses on the underlying problem which is economics. If you plan on doing any kind of humanitarian or charity work, you should read this first.

A deeply disturbing insight into how the West is failing Africa and what we can do about it - by an aid industry insider.
The Author has been closely involved in Africa and its development for more than ten years as civil servant, diplomat and aid worker.

Well researched, clearly and enjoyably written.

I'm inspired and moved by the revelations as should every citizen who's taxes are wastefully and negligently spent on a supposed worthy cause.
