Review

"Who and what is Robert Coles? Social scientist, humanist, political activist, psychiatrist, minstrel, wandering storyteller, mysitc, wise man, poet, dissenter, and yes, I’ll use the word, secular saint." —Andrew Greely, Chicago Tribune

"By now most people know Robert Coles. Or for their own sake they ought to." —The New York Times Book Review
