The back of the jacket says:
"In The Life You Can Save', philosopher Peter Singer - named one of 'the 100 most influential people in the world' by Time magazine - shows that our current response to world poverty is not only insufficient but ethically indefensible. In this call to action and hopeful treatise on the power of compassion, Singer argues that we urgently need to change our habits and our views.
"Giving can make a huge difference to the lives of others, without diminishing the quality of our own. If you earn a salary, Singer suggests, try starting with 5%. In the face of the worst economic outlook in some time, this persuasive, unflinching book is essential reading: a rigorous and empowering investigation into how we can, and why we must, help lift others out of despair."
