it was amazing
Read in June, 2008

I read this at the recommendation of several friends. I liked the book a ton. The only criticism is that I wish the author would have delved more into the real lives of her co-workers - the ones that *truly* suffer at the hands of Welfare-to-Work programs and other social help cutbacks.

Overall, I agree with most of what she put forth. I think she waxed philosophical a bit too much, but that is a minor complaint.
