Doing Good Better: How Effective Altruism Can Help You  
Help Others, Do Work that Matters, and Make Smarter Choices About Giving Back 
by William MacAskill.

 MacAskill and his colleagues developed effective altruism—a practical, data-driven approach 
to doing good that allows us to make a tremendous difference regardless of our resources. 
Effective altruists operate by asking certain key questions, which force them to think differently, overcome biases, and use evidence and careful reasoning rather than act on impulse. 
In Doing Good Better, MacAskill lays out these principles and shows that, when we use them correctly—when we apply the head and the heart to each of our altruistic endeavors—each of us has the power to do an astonishing amount of good.
