The Good Life with Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, authors of 'The Spirit Level'
The eye-opening UK bestseller shows how one single factor - the gap between its richest and poorest members-can determine the health and well being of a society. Based on thirty years of research, The Spirit Level shows that there is one common factor that links the healthiest and happiest societies: the degree of equality among their members. Not wealth, not resources, not culture, climate, diet or system of government: and unequal societies are bad for everyone in them - the well off as well as the poor.
Armed with this research, we can find a way to a more sustainable and healthy society, and find the tools so all members of our society can thrive.
