Does a great job of addressing and dispelling myths and beliefs about prostitution. If you only read one part of the book, I would skip straight to the back and read the section entitled, "Barriers to Services for Women Escaping Nevada Prostitution and Trafficking."

It provides a very thorough account of the situation there and offers carefully researched facts and expert insight.
