Summary

This audiobook is part introduction to, part reflective examination of the idea and ideal of effective altruism. Its aim is to examine the core question of effective altruism: How can we best help others? It's a question that in turn forces us to contemplate what helping others, effectively or otherwise, really entails. 

Here, the audiobook argues that the greatest help we can provide is to reduce extreme suffering for all sentient beings and then goes on to provide some suggestions for how this might best be done.

Dull as dishwater

This book was a great disappointment I thought I might learn something from it about helping others but it was a very dull theoretical mumbo-jumbo. Read in a very flat voice. I couldn’t make myself stick with it till the end. I don’t know why I had to give a star for “story” as there is no story and a nonfiction book.
