PSA: Peter Singer’s “The life you can save” is available for free

In 2009, Peter Singer wrote the first edition of The Life You Can Save to demonstrate why we should care about and help those living in global extreme poverty, and how easy it is to improve and even save lives by giving effectively.

This morning I listened to an 80 000 hours podcast with Peter Singer and learned that, on the 10th anniversary of its publication, his book, The life you can save, is now available as a free ebook and audiobook (you can get the audiobook as a podcast subscription, which is very convenient). Singer’s ideas in this book, and Practical ethics, have been hugely influential in my thinking and teaching and thought that more people might be interested in the ideas that he shares.
