it's a fast and interesting read. The thing which strikes me most about this book is that the author offers no concrete solutions to the issue - just his insights after having lived in his car for a month to research homelessness, and interview the homeless. The idea he puts forth is that we can't treat them (the problem) with a singular solution because the homeless are out there due to very different circumstances. We, therefore, should learn to treat each individual as an individual. Huh...what a concept, eh?
Respect for others is another common thread, and it makes sense. Who wants to be disrespected?
I recommend this book for anyone who has any interest in the homeless. And, unless you live on Mars you should have an interest; you see them every day, in all situations. Government will only do so much, organized charities can only do so much, you can only do so much. But, whatever that is, do it.
This is a brave book that offers insight into the motivations, obstacles and backstories of people who are homeless. Author Glen Dunzweiler intentionally lived out of his car during the filming of his movie, “yHomeless?” Now he has published a handbook for people who feel flummoxed and frustrated by how to handle the growing number of people living on the street. The book includes a few examples of effective programs across the country. But he makes the point that each community will have its own mix of government, charity and church. He describe specific homeless people he has met and their obstacles: including weather, hunger, isolation and fear. But Dunzweiler also empathizes with people who see the man sleeping near the bus stop, and turn away. “Panhandlers are the de facto PR representatives for homeless people,” he writes. But he goes on to describe the quieter members of the homeless tribe, who find family and belonging and small victories in the midst of their bad luck and bad decisions. This book is a must read for anyone who is personally working to find housing and treatment for people living on the streets. It is also an important book for anyone who wonders about their own humanity as they walk by people lying in doorways. And that’s an awful lot of us.

There are so many positive reviews for this book and I just do not know why, it is such a shame because I had high hopes. Do not buy in my opinion.
