Easy to follow explanation of extreme poverty in a rich country. A cautionary tale for Brits.
$2.00 a Day is an eye-opening book but heartbreaking. It describes the daily grind and many unseen hardships of people with practically no income.
Allyson Johnson did a wonderful job narrating the book.

I read this book months ago, and I've never forgotten it. I think about the pizza I just ordered or the amount I spend on groceries, and I wonder... if I had to live on an income of $2 per person per day... what would I do?
I am awed by the industriousness of the families profiled in this book, by their pluckiness and their togetherness, the love for their children and their spouses and their parents.
This book will change how you view poverty... and maybe that's a good thing.
