The Handbook vs Doing Good Better - what is the difference? Is the book better or worse? Do they have the same goals?
They both have the same main goal of making the major ideas in effective altruism available to relative newbies.
The Handbook is freely available online, and is made of volunteered essays and blog posts, by a variety of prominent EA authors. Doing Good Better is formally published, longer, carefully structured, easier to read, and consistently styled (as a pop-science/pop-philosophy book).
DGB also has some free sample chapters [https://80000hours.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Doing-Good-Better-Chapter-9.pdf] and then there's 80,000 Hours' free online careers guide in paperback and ebook format [https://www.amazon.co.uk/80-000-Hours-fulfilling-career-ebook/dp/B01M70QISP] which 80,000 Hours were recently offering for free.
