Our core values and cultural expectations are taught to us as children and influence our lifestyle choices. A set of ideals in which freedoms that include the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility achieved through hard work. So for many, the phrase "American Dream" conjures up images of a house, a car, a picket fence and 2.5 children. So when disaster strikes, it shakes the foundation of those core values.
The intention of this book is to identify the psychosocial impacts that stem from residential toxic exposure and to examine their significance. There are four purposes that Edelstein bases his analysis on:
1. The psychosocial impact of toxic exposure, involve complex connections on many different levels of society that change over time with the individuals and the environment.
2. How the exposure influences the way a victim behaves and how they understand their lives both in the short and long term.
3. Toxic exposure incidents are extremely traumatic and call for coping responses.
4. The stigmatizing nature of contamination and the very possibility stimulates fear in the public.
One of the lessons that I have learned from Edelstein is the developed misconception, which involves the assumption that problems can be solved in isolation, away from the complicating factors and uncertainties of the real world. If we narrow a problem enough, it will be controllable, and solvable.

Dr. Edelstein is careful and methodical in his telling of the enormous psychological impact of water contamination. He is especially informative about the factor of "place" as it affects individuals and families whose wells are poisoned.
