really liked it

This book is very good but rather disturbing. It challenges a lot of modern ideas and practices having to do with helping the poor. It takes an honest look at what kind of things are being done today and why they aren't having the desired effects. It then describes some programs that are being implemented with very good long-term results. Definitely worth reading!

Stacey I am on the second half of the book, and I feel the same way Lisa. It is good, but disturbing as it challenges how we have "always" done things..
