This book was recommended to me by my brother who I rarely share similar tastes. He raved about it, and told me that my daughter, who is a social worker, has probably read it. Turns out that her mother-in-law gave it to her when she graduated from the University of Chicago School of Social Work. Subsequently, she's given it to her interns over the last 10 years.
The stories are beyond anything I know from my suburban upbringing, but clearly show that if we don't figure out one generation to help, this tale will continue generation after generation as we saw it. I think that every thinking person should read this.
