-- "Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author"

This timely and accessible volume unpacks a complex problem, and points toward solutions.

-- "Library Journal"

Smartly blending personal observations with recent research in psychology and neuroscience...[Payne] details how our perceived relative position in the scheme of things plays a 'critical role' in shaping our biases, habits, and ideas.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

The Broken Ladder's examination of the consequences of inequality-of what it is like to be poor and to feel poor-is as profound as it is revelatory.

-- "Sonja Lyubomirsky, PhD, author of The How of Happiness"
