This book contains priceless information about working with people living in poverty. Unfortunately, it was very difficult, and at times impossible, to read the charts in the Kindle edition. This was very poorly done and should be corrected.

Very nicely packaged to protect the book April 22 2012
By Lynn F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very nicely packaged to protect the book. This is required reading for Bridges to Circles volunteers. Some parts of the book are very helpful in understanding generational poverty and ways to overcome it. Of course, by necessity the descriptions are often stereotypical but still give an accurate overview of people in poverty. When working with individuals, their particular and different situations and personalities must be uncovered. Just as with any relationship, one must listen carefully and respect each person.

no nonsense April 5 2014
By Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was used as a text book for my social work class. The information presented may be offensive to some in that the author basically advocates for Anglo-protestant acculturation. The reality of our society is that most of the rules governing behavior and the likely hood of success are these "hidden rules" shown in the book. While the author does neglect some of the cultural tools useful to minorities, the point of the book is to show social workers, educators, and others how to help their clients achieve success.

this book motivated me to be part of the solution to the poverty problem Feb. 19 2014
By B. Lynn Blankenship - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I now consider every word that I speak before I speak it when communicating with the poverty class. I have spent the last five years of my life meeting needs for this class but never understood the reason for their noncompliance to society's rules and norms. It all makes sense now, as a result I spend much more time listening then I do speaking.
