Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Readers of this book will learn not only technical skills -- and skills that really matter -- but also a general attitude and approach to doing community work (one might call it "spiritual") that they'll rarely find anywhere else. The book is well designed, engaging to read, and likely to make a lasting positive difference for those who consider its lessons carefully. Very highly recommended.
