For the first time in history, eradicating world poverty is within our reach. Yet around the world, a billion people struggle to live each day on less than many of us pay for bottled water. In The Life You Can Save , Peter Singer uses ethical arguments, illuminating examples, and case studies of charitable giving to show that our current response to world poverty is not only insufficient but morally indefensible. The Life You Can Save teaches us to be a part of the solution, helping others as we help ourselves.

He hasn't changed the basic argument in over forty years (even though its been refuted), and this book, less rigorous than his other writings, has numerous suggestions and examples for taking action. Some of those whom he mentions have many of their papers online (Arneson's that is mentioned, and those of G. Cullity). Serious and passionate; I highly recommend reading it and taking some of the suggested actions.
