Bridges out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities is an insightful and yet practical look into the world of poverty. The premise of the book is that the culture of poverty is so different from the middle class and wealthy cultures that it is difficult for people living in the latter to help people out of the former. Much of the content resonated with me and reminded me of my experience years ago in the Little Village area of Chicago. Having the benefit of hindsight, I can see where the principles and ideas of this book were in play, even though at 17 and 18 years old I lacked the knowledge to recognize them.
