Very powerful read about the conditions in the South Bronx in the mid-90s. As someone who donates frequently to charities that work with the poor in other countries, I am somewhat ashamed after reading this book to realize that I've never considered working with, or donating to, organizations that work within inner city communities. I plan to change this ASAP. I would love to read an updated version of this book that answers the questions, "have things changed in the neighborhoods this author writes about? have any improvements been made? have things gotten worse?"
