I read this book many years ago, but had forgotten the title. I just now came across it, and just wanted to say here what a wonderful book it is. It forces you to see things around you in a whole new way. It truly enables you to step into someone else's shoes--at least for a short time. Maybe the empathy we gain will force us to change the world; even if only in small ways.
