Pete Singer, The Life You Can Save, and
many are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the publication
(originally published 3rd December 2009) and the global initiative
which it launched. He is also the author of the iconic book on

to all listeners as he mentions in the piece. He says "this is
to 'reach the most readers/listeners and help the most people who
live in poverty."
Singer believes that the end of global
poverty is in our reach. THE LIFE YOU CAN SAVE gives
concrete directives about what all of us should
and can do to help bring that end more
quickly. Since the book’s 2009 first-edition
release, dramatic progress has been made in reducing extreme
global poverty, and the book and organization have contributed to
that effort by helping raise millions of dollars for effective
charities. However, millions of people across the world still live
in abject poverty, so much work has yet to be done.
Widely considered to be one of the most
influential living philosophers, Singer was named one
of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people
in the world in 2005, and in 2009 The Sydney Morning
Herald and The Age included him among
the most influential Australians of the past half-century. Among
the 50 books he’s co-authored, edited,
or co-edited, is Animal Liberation, considered
the “bible” of the animal rights movement. He is the founder of the
non-profit The Life You Can Save.
