This 2007 book challenges the conventional economic approaches to development and poverty and contributes to a new paradigm for development centred on human wellbeing. Poor people are not defined solely by their poverty and a wellbeing approach provides a better means of understanding how people become and stay poor.

Review of the hardback: 'This is a beautifully constructed and apposite book for those seeking hope amid today's economic crisis and who work in development from any discipline or background. It challenges the conventional wisdom of money, commodities and economic growth as our main ways of understanding development and poverty and could have as much impact on development as Lanyard has done for the relationship between happiness and wealth. It is written by those and for those seeking a more inclusive model for understanding how people in developing countries see themselves and the possibilities of change.' Patricia d'Ardenne, ChartistBiografía del autor:
