Reviews

It's a thought-provoking read, challenging us to examine what New Zealanders (and especially government policy-makers) value, as well as to reconsider the most appropriate sources of evidence to inform policy-making. It's an excellent introduction to not only the wellbeing and policy landscape but also to Waring's writing. It has encouraged me to seek out more of her books, articles and podcasts. - Anne Kerslake Hendricks, NZ Booksellers Blog, 5 February 2019
