If I was in my 20's again, after reading this book, I'd be tempted to become a social worker. As a novice social worker, the author's compassion and sense of humor inspired him to develop some novel approaches to his clients' problems. Very entertaining style of writing.

Loved this book. The author recounts with insight and humor his experiences as a rookie social worker in rural West Virginia. Really entertaining. Made me cry a little and laugh a lot. If you work in the helping professions, or know someone who does, or want to learn a little about the life of a social worker, you will really like this book.

I really enjoyed. reading this book. It's very eye opening and inspiring. The way the stories were told was touching sometimes comical. Great read for anyone interested in this field.

Not current, set back in the 70's. If you know little about the field, than this might be a good start. If you know a lot about the field it is not worth your time. Cute, but lacks depth.
