Review: Escaping Poverty

Escaping Poverty
Escaping Poverty by Reading Harbor
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An inspiring collection of life stories by those who’ve known dire financial deprivation first hand.

While a few among the stories in the book approach some comprehension of the multifaceted nature of such life condition, most focus on just not having enough money to meet their needs. Can one not be rich, materially, and yet be poor in a number of other aspects?

An interesting collection, nevertheless, of stories from within the wealthiest of nations. Diligence in editorial corrections can surely enhance quality, and reader appreciation, of contributions within.
