    " A very thought provoking take on international development from someone who knows what he's talking about. Instead of expounding theories from an ivory tower, Paul Polak rolls up his sleeves and gets the job done. Everyone who wants to help end extreme poverty must read this. "

    " This book focuses on one very specific idea, which is that rural people living on less than a dollar a day should use low-cost drip irrigation to grow labor intensive produce out of season. According to Polak, if we can just help them get started with that, all the problems associated with poverty will solve themselves. "
