THE BEST BOOK IN DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS July 4, 2007
By Jose Maria Abad Hernandez
I have recently had the pleasure to read this book. As a researcher and consultant, I have had the possibility of reading and studying in depth most of the books, papers, and so on, published on Development but I am sincere when I say to my colleagues that I have never read anything like this book, through which Professors Perkins, Radelet and Lindauer are able to explain for Undergraduate students (and anyone interested in this field) the basics (and not so basics) of Development and Economic Growth, forgetting about showing off and focusing just on transferring their knowledge to their students / readers. If I had to describe the book in one word, I would it is just "amazing" and, as it can be inferred from my words, I strongly recommend this book.

This is a well-organized, straight-forward, and informative introduction to development economics. The book has obviously been edited and polished so as to deliver information to the student in the most efficient way possible. Also, this book is so interesting that it is a joy to read. I cannot say that about very many textbooks.
