Speaking as an editor and prolific reader, I can attest that the stories in this collection are highly readable. In addition,the format is approachable and informative. This is a must read for anyone who works with homeless people and those with related issues.

By J. Robinson on September 20, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Everyone who reads this book will learn much about the individuals who too often get lumped together as "the homeless". Their stories are grouped in meaningful ways and the impact is powerful. I highly recommend the book.
