Reviews

Giridharadas takes a swipe at the global elite in a trenchant, provocative and well-researched book about the people who are notionally generating social change . . . Read it and beware -- Martha Lane Fox * Financial Times Books of the Year *
Hugely enjoyable. . . A spirited examination of the hubris and hypocrisy of the super-rich who claim they are helping the world -- Aditya Chakrabortty * Guardian *
Entertaining and gripping . . . For those at the helm, the philanthropic plutocrats and aspiring "change agents" who believe they are helping but are actually making things worse, it's time for a reckoning with their role in this spiraling dilemma -- Joseph Stiglitz * New York Times Book Review *
A splendid polemic. . . Giridharadas writes brilliantly on the parasitic philanthropy industry * Economist *
Anyone who enjoys acute observation will appreciate Winners Take All. . . Whichever party is in office, the rich are usually in control. If you are wondering why, turn to Giridharadas -- Edward Luce * Financial Times *
Giridharadas isn't afraid to speak his mind, even if it means taking down some of the most powerful people on the planet. . . He has started a movement with his latest book Winners Take All, a scathing critique of a society that rewards monopolistic models, faux philanthropy and protects the interests of a wealthy few -- Tabitha Goldstaub * Forbes *
A fierce book. . . What gives Giridharadas's heartfelt critique such force is that he is a heretic, someone chosen for the equivalent of the priesthood in the new religion of philanthropy who had a revelation and decided to renounce the faith -- Iain Martin * The Times *
In Anand's thought-provoking book his fresh perspective on solving complex societal problems is admirable. I appreciate his commitment and dedication to spreading social justice -- Bill Gates
Winners Take All boldly exposes one of the great if little-reported scandals of the age of globalization: the domestication of the life of the mind by political and financial power and the substitution of 'thought leaders' for critical thinkers. It not only reorients us as we lurch out of a long ideological intoxication; it also embodies the values -- intellectual autonomy and dissent -- that we need to build a just society -- Pankaj Mishra, author of Age of Anger
In this trenchant and timely book, Anand Giridharadas shows how the winners of global capitalism seek to help the losers, but without disturbing the market-friendly arrangements that keep the winners on top. An indispensable guide for those perplexed by the rising public anger toward 'change-making' elites -- Michael J. Sandel, author of What Money Can't Buy
A brilliant, rising voice of our era takes us on a journey among the global elite in his search for understanding of our tragic disconnect. Thought-provoking, expansive, and timely -- Isabel Wilkerson, author of The Warmth of Other Suns
A trenchant, humane, and often revelatory investigation by one of the wisest nonfiction writers going -- Katherine Boo, author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers
