Nobody clarifies the social challenges of our time, or the moral imperative to help meet them, better than Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. Their latest book, A Path Appears, offers an inspiring roundup of the many simple and effective ways in which we can lend our hearts and talents to grow hope and opportunity both at home and around the globe—and an important reminder that just because we can’t do everything doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do something.

Broadly inclusive and multifaceted account of possible solutions to today’s "overwhelming and unrelenting" social problems. Heartening anecdotal sketches of both givers and receivers in the "charity industry" are engaging and informative, and Kristof and WuDunn hope to provoke serious thought about the role of charity in today’s world.
Publishers Weekly


[K]nown for their crusading work on human rights...[the authors] examine individuals who are making a difference, aiming not simply to get us to contribute time, skills, and/or money to their efforts but to parse which approaches and initiatives really work. The forthcoming four-part PBS documentary amplifies the message.
Library Journal


A primer on "finding innovative and effective ways to give back."... [T]he husband-and-wife team addresses how ordinary people can participate in "a revolution in tackling social problems, employing new savvy, discipline and experience to chip away at poverty and injustice."... The authors deliver a profound message that packs a wallop.
