Longlisted for the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year-- "Publishers Weekly"

One of the Financial Times' Summer Books of 2020: Economics-- "Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter"

This book is of the highest importance.---Martin Wolf, Financial Times-- "New York Times Editors' Choice"

A must-read for anyone attempting to objectively understand our collective American pain as well as those gaining from it.---Rahul Gupta, Democracy-- "Publishers Weekly"

Important.---Michael Tomasky, Democracy-- "New Scientist"

Simply put, this is a terrific book. I suspect it will be on many people's top 10 book lists of 2020. Although written before COVID-19, the book's critique of the US approach to health care and inequality is remarkably prescient. In many ways, the opioid crisis Case and Deaton analyze is a microcosm of the anguish the world is experiencing today, and we would be remiss not to pay attention to their insights.---Kenneth Rogoff, Finance & Development-- "Publishers Weekly"

Although the authors completed this book before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic -- it was published four days after President Trump declared a national emergency -- their diagnosis is still painfully relevant.---Carlos Lozada, Washington Post-- "Publishers Weekly"

Anne Case and Angus Deaton are senior economists at Princeton with expertise in public health and poverty, respectively. The combination, plus clear writing and ample doses of caution and open-mindedness, makes Deaths of Despair a compelling book.---Edward Hadas, Reuters BreakingViews

A New York Times Editors' Choice

Case and Deaton explain how every detail of this crisis unfolded, examining recent historical events and rightly placing much of the blame on the United States' distinctive strain of capitalism, designed to protect and grow the assets of the wealthy few.---Keri Leigh Merrit, Common Dreams-- "New York Times Editors' Choice"

This highly important book examines the pain and despair among white blue-collar workers and suggests that the hopelessness they are experiencing may eventually extend to the entire American work force.-- "New York Times Editors' Choice"

Elaborately explained and well-presented. . . . Case and Deaton's well-written and gloomy book was meant as a warning. Relentlessly fighting an infectious disease, the U.S. government seems to have treated it as a handbook.---Joakim Book, American Institute for Economic Research-- "Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter"

Deaths of Despair is designed to shine a light on a generational catastrophe that could--perhaps will--become a multigenerational disaster. It does this with chilling precision.---Mike Jakeman, Strategy+Business

[a] hard-hitting study of US capitalism.---Andrew Robinson, Nature

One of Next Big Idea Club's Most Anticipated Nonfiction Books of Spring

Through simple figures and clear prose, it presents a huge bodyof evidence from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's WONDER database and other sources that the arc of the white working class's fate over the last two decades is long, but it bends toward nihilism and an early grave.---Gabriel Rossman, Washington Examiner-- "Publishers Weekly"

[A] remarkable and poignant book.---Dani Rodrik, Project Syndicate-- "New Scientist"

[Case and Deaton] dive into and weave the data through different demographic and clinical lenses -- race, gender, age, social connectedness, work history, and the most important through-line: education. Thus Case and Deaton connect the dots, literally, in the many charts that explain what factors are driving the Deaths of Despair.---Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, Health Populi Blog-- "Publishers Weekly"

A highly important book.---Arlie Russell Hochschild, New York Times Book Review-- "Publishers Weekly"

A remarkable new book.---John Harris, The Guardian-- "New Scientist"

A New York Times Bestseller

A Wall Street Journal Bestseller-- "Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter"

An excellent book.---Nicholas Kristof, New York Times-- "New Scientist"

Complementing their candid prose with enlightening charts and graphs, Case and Deaton make the scale and immediacy of the problem crystal clear. This is an essential portrait of America in crisis.-- "Publishers Weekly"

Disturbing. . . . . Case and Deaton do a great job making the case that something has gone grievously wrong.---Jim Zarroli, NPR-- "Publishers Weekly"

Excellent.-- "Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter"

Gripping. . . . [Case and Deaton] do not merely rehearse decades of mortality and wage statistics. Rather, they seek to catalogue how an entire way of life first frayed and then fell apart over the past half-century, and the cruelty of an American meritocracy that heaps lavish rewards on the winners while increasingly leaving others to rot.---Joshua Chaffin, Financial Times-- "Publishers Weekly"

I highly, highly recommend it.---Cardiff Garcia, NPR Planet Money's The Indicator-- "Publishers Weekly"

One of the Financial Times Selected Titles for 2020 Visions: The Year Ahead in Books-- "Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter"

One of New Statesman's Books to Read in 2020

The policies that the authors advocate not only would address deaths of despair, they would improve the health and welfare of the American people more generally.---David Canning, Science

The rise in premature deaths among working-class whites has become a national crisis, and the authors tie the problem to the weakening position of labor, the growing power of corporations, and to a health-care sector that redistributes working-class wages to the wealthy.-- "Publishers Weekly"

The system is broken and every bit of it needs fixing. This is a sobering - and essential - book.---Diane Coyle, Enlightened Economist-- "Publishers Weekly"

Timely and important.---Ed Balls, Financial Times-- "New Scientist"

We Americans are reluctant to acknowledge that our economy serves the educated classes and penalizes the rest. But that's exactly the situation, and Deaths of Despair shows how the immiseration of the less educated has resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, even as the economy has thrived and the stock market has soared.---Atul Gawande, New Yorker-- "New Scientist"

Well-researched, compassionate.---Susan Babbitt, New York Journal of Books-- "New Scientist"

Why economics really matters is illustrated in Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism. . . . The authors argue that the capitalism that lifted countless people out of poverty is now destroying blue-collar America. They have solutions to make it work for all. They had better be right.-- "New Scientist"
