Format: Perfect Paperback
Finally, a book based on more than theory...a book based in research and practice. This is a very personal book from the authors perspective describing a developing model for fighting poverty in America that is working. I would recommend it for anyone wanting to eliminate poverty in their local community, someone willing to challenge the status quo and be a road warrior in this battle. The book is personal and practical, and leads you to think that it really might be possible to end poverty in America, just like it was possible to end slavery, if only we have the will to do so. I'd highly recommend this selection.

I bought this book hoping that I would learn more about the Circles movement and how to implement such a program to help get people out of poverty. Unfortunately, very little of the book is about that topic. For example, Chapter 9 is actually about the reader's need to remove clutter from his life. Seriously. Until It's Gone would have benefited enormously from an editor, and from real content.

"Being chronically deadly serious about society's great conundrums is anithetical to the life process. Each one of us is vastly interesting---as is a rainbow or even the tiny algae comprising 'pond scum'! On some level, it is hilarious that what can bring fulfillment is right under our feet and only a touch away from the next human being, yet we can feel a neeed to travel to the moon and back looking for it. We need to savor our humanity and the earth while we go about saving it. The one who laughs first has more fun." -- Chapter 13

The rest of the book that isn't about topics such as global warming or the dangers of clutter can be summarized as: poverty is bad and you should do something about it. There are a few stories from participants in the Circles movement, but they aren't organized in any way.

Scott Miller's perspective and what he has learned in carrying out his work has changed how I perceive the world, poverty in the U.S. and the work I do in the community. This book is not intended to be the "how to" of doing Circles in your community. What it does do is to make the case for getting engaged in your community to make a difference in a way that can work. This book is more about why it is important and that it is possible and necessary to change how we as a nation can support people with low-income to move out of poverty. The book inspired me to bring Circles to my own community. The book challenges what we think about poverty and what we can do to successfully end poverty.

This book describes the concept of Circles as an effective way to reduce and eliminate poverty in this country. I was skeptical about such a bold claim at first but I now believe the Circles concept that is expanding around the country can and will make a difference. This book is an easy read that is clearly written.

Do not read this book unless you are ready to have your life changed forever. Yes I offer the challenge. This book was recommended in a Poverty Study I took. I finally downloaded it and wow. Thank you Scott Miller and company.
