About the books
These books introduce ideas we think are really important for building a successful career focused on tackling the world’s most pressing problems. We think you’ll really like them — although we know the authors and we wrote one of them, so we’re a bit biased!

The Precipice: Existential Risk and the Future of Humanity

Doing Good Better: Effective Altruism and How You Can Make a Difference

  • I've never heard of them, but I suspect it is 80,000 hours, rather than 8,000 hours.

    Four working years doesn't sound as good as a forty year career :-)

    • Whoops, that makes sense. Updated now.

    Hi - I'm not associated with 80k, but I am involved with the 'Effective Altruism' community, which 80k is a part of. We've got EA community groups in Auckland (a student group and a city group), Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunners.

    There are some overlaps - cheapies users are bizarrely good optimisers, same with EAs. And both groups really like getting value for money.

    If you are interested and would like to come to a social event or discussion group to see what the vibe is like, flick me a PM and I can put you in touch with the group in your area.

    And I absolutely encourage you to sign up for a free book - you could even sign up for two free books (if you think you will actually read them):
    - get 'Doing Good Better' from Effective Altruism NZ
    - get one of the other books from the 80,000 Hours giveaway.
