A lot of material has been developed on how we can go about doing a lot of good. Here is some of the best.

If you like TED talks, watch Peter Singer’s The Why and How of Effective Altruism. The Life You Can Save (Singer’s first book on Effective Altruism) in 3 minutes is a great watch.

The Effective Altruism FAQ is a pretty great overview. 8/10, would read.

A great place to start is the EA Handbook (pdf mobi epub). A much more basic version is available here on the EA forum

Ben Kuhn compiles a great set of articles here.

A good primer on GiveWell, global poverty reduction (and charities in general): Giving 101: the basics

Peter McIntyre has written a post summarising charity selection heuristics, and some cause areas: Effective charities 101

How should you spend your 80 000 hours of your working life? 80 000 Hours (where did they get the name from?) has put together an incredible guide on careers.

The talks given at Effective Altruism Global in Melbourne cover a lot of ground (here).

Singer’s books: The Life You Can Save, and The Most Good You Can Do are good introductions, and have changed many people’s lives.

Will MacAskill’s book, Doing Good Better, is equally great and all profits from its sale go towards effective charities.
