Australian moral philosopher Peter Singer is best known for his works in applied ethics, with major works exploring the movements of effective altruism and animal liberation. In The Most Good You Can Do, Singer argues that people should not only try to reduce suffering, but reduce it in the most effective manner possible. "In this new book, Singer introduces us to people who are giving much more and are having fun doing it, and shows us just how easy it is to make a positive difference in the world" - Lori Gruen, author of Ethics and Animals: An Introduction.
