This is an interesting account of Jeffrey Sach’s implementation of the Millenium Development Villages project. It is fascination to read about Sach’s determination to get things done, his way to deal with issues, and his interaction with leaders like Museveni in Uganda. It is not easy to put this one down once you start reading as so many problems are encountered and it is impossible to stop reading without finding out how they are solved, or whether they can be solved in the first place. Without a doubt, it shows that it does not only take money to move third world villages onto the development ladder.
