Pulitzer winner Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn have combined to produce a riveting review of “what works” –at home and in abroad, in rich and poor countries, with start-ups and interventions, in A Path Appears: Transformimg Lives, Creating Opportunity. The book layers take readers to very far away and grief struck places and to their open back yards and pushes forward the question “What really works” in the millions of efforts to “do justice and love kindness.”
A television series appears in January, and a web site covering both book and show is here. Kristof and WuDunn can be followed on Twitter at @nickkristof and @wudunn, and there is of course a hashtag: #apathappears.
Kristof joins me on today’s show.
