Australian philosopher Peter Singer has written a book that is short, provocative, and both philosophical and practical.

He tackles the thorny questions of why we should give to charity, to whom we should give, and even how much each of us should give. His ideas on the psychological barriers to giving, and the philosophical reasons for doing so, are especially compelling.
