I enjoyed reading this book immensely. You know how some books are thin and others are meaty? This one for me was full of interesting information in the form of interviews of people who livedthrough the depression. Many different kinds of people--some who evn did well during that time. It really taught me a lot.
Anyone interested in the history of the time would enjoy this book. I give it five stars.
