Malaria is a major problem in sub-Saharan Africa. Over 1 million people—mostly children—die from malaria each year. Insecticide-treated bed nets prevent deaths, and many other non-fatal cases of malaria and are relatively inexpensive, about $5 per net.
The Deworm the World Initiative, led by Evidence Action, supports programs that treat children for parasitic worm infections that cause short-term symptoms such as anemia, and may cause longer-term developmental problems. These worms are very inexpensive to treat.
SCI supports programs that treat people for parasitic worm infections that cause short-term symptoms such as anemia, and may cause longer-term developmental problems. These worms are very inexpensive to treat.
Directly transferring money to poor individuals allows them to purchase that which they believe will help them most. Strong evidence indicates that cash transfers lead recipients to spend more on their basic needs (such as food) and may allow recipients to make investments with high returns, with no evidence of large increases in spending on items like alcohol or tobacco.
This book made my life much easier. Now when I'm stuck with too much work I don`t have to wring my hands. I just pick a couple of these science-based methods and follow the simple steps and make every day really productive.
As someone with a conflicting combination of large ambitions and chronic procrastination, I really, really needed this book. It smoothly translates results from psychological studies into digestible, easily applicable methods for the reader to immediately use in their lives. I highly, highly recommend it.
Most books about productivity refer to author's own opinions or experience. And some books on the topic contradict each other. In "Productivity: 31 Science-Based Time-Management Improvements" we only focused on scientifically proven methods, often referring to newest research. So if you're looking for a reliable source with up to date information, you can gain a lot from reading this book (especially since some of the results are surprising and counterintuitive). Just to be clear - we don't claim that other books on the subject are useless - quite the opposite, there are many books based on authors experience that are great, but we still think that there should be resource devoted to scientific take on the subject.
The short answer is - yes. The long answer - there are many factors, the most important one - will the reader actually use the information in practice. To address that, at the end of each chapter we provide a step by step guide on how to implement the knowledge into real life. Assuming that the person has the willingness to improve his or her productivity, the e-book is a great resource describing many ways to do it.

The legal form of our company is Community Interest Company (you can read more about it on Wikipedia). It means that we are obligated to spend our profits on the social objectives we've set for ourselves in the articles of association of the company and for us it is supporting the World's most effective charities.
Well-Managed World C.I.C. is a social enterprise based in the United Kingdom with the mission of making the humanity manage its resources better. We believe that transferring more wealth and knowledge from Europe, North America, and Asia to Africa would be beneficial for everyone. We sell digital products and donate the profits to the most effective charities.
Why not just raise money for the cause? There are many organizations that already do it more effectively than we would (since they have much more experience and broader know-how). So instead, we want to provide valuable products to the richer part of the World and then transfer that money through charities to poorest people. And as a side-effect promote Effective Altruism, which is a movement that applies rationality and evidence-based thinking to finding the most effective ways to improve the world.
