An Uncomfortable Read

Duncan Green of Oxfam GB writes that Time to Listen was “an uncomfortable read” and had him “squirming on multiple levels.” To this we say, “Good!”

His review on his blog, From Poverty to Power, tells us that that we are getting our point across. This book is meant to rattle readers a bit and get them motivated to shake up the status quo and to really see the need for a paradigm shift within the aid system. The voices of 6,000 people are difficult to ignore. We’re glad to see that their reflections and insights are being taken to heart.
