A major reason for writing Getting to Zero was the desire to contribute to a disaster like this not happening again. For this reason, current and future practitioners are key readerships that we had in mind while we were writing. The book is written in an accessible memoir style but is also the product of extensive research, including 85 semi-structured interviews and the review of hundreds of documents.
We believe that this book would be an excellent resource not only for current practitioners in the field but also in university courses in areas such as global health, humanitarianism and international development. We would be keen to hear from academics interested in potentially using the book or parts of the book in their courses. We also encourage students to recommend the book to their lecturers and professors
