Reviews

This is a book that confounds expectations ... Hughes is thoughtful, humble and honest about his luck ... A meditation on the great issues of the 21st-century economy * The Times *
Deeply felt and cogently argued ... Hughes makes a powerful case that deserves a respectful hearing * Financial Times *
Admirable ... As much a memoir as a manifesto - an endearing effort by the author to understand the meaning of his extraordinary circumstances * Economist *
I admire Chris's commitment to apply his talent, experience and wealth to tackle some of our toughest problems -- Bill Gates
If we are to be true to the principles of our nation's founding, opportunity cannot be solely the province of the wealthy and well-connected. Yet the promise that if you work hard you can get ahead is broken for millions. As we strive to build a fairer, more inclusive country, Fair Shot is a very important read. These ideas must be part of the conversation -- Senator Cory Booker
Too many people are working too hard and they're still sinking, not even able to cover the basic costs of living. Fair Shot offers a new tool for economic mobility: a guaranteed income to all working people - even those whose work hasn't been recognised or compensated with income before -- Arianna Huffington
A provocative, experientially grounded contribution to the debate around a once-outlandish idea * San Francisco Chronicle *
