The title covers what this book is about. The author was a little too clinical for my taste, giving a lot of statistics and sometimes lacking a more personal nature to the stories. Three different families who've emigrated from India to New Jersey are the focus of this book. I did found the accounts interesting, but sometimes got confused as to who was who.
