Reviews

"The book blisters with research. . . This is a book that puts the numbers to a psychological truth: inequality is the real enemy." β€”Polly Toynbee, The Guardian

"We need to be told what we know, instinctively, about what makes a good society. Wilkinson's book tells us, and shows us that our social instincts have become a science." β€”Prospect

"A powerful and provocative piece of scholarship . . . presents a challenge to us all to improve popular health by tackling economic and social inequalities." β€”Lisa Berkman, Harvard School of Public Health
