When I was discussing with peers what classes I was considering taking, they immediately told me to take your class because they had you for Social Issues in the fall semester. So trusting them, I decided to take Urban Anthropology. Thankfully, they were right, I enjoyed this class very much and I liked your teaching style. The PowerPoints were very well written and the way you explained the concepts made it much easier to understand. In addition, I enjoyed the films and video clips you included in your teachings so that we could get a better grasp and understanding of the topic

This book helped me see homelessness as it is seen from people who experience it, rather than from my own perspective. Well thought-out covering multiple aspects. I especially learned from the chapter on those who service those who are homeless. I'm passing this book on to friends who also work on the issue of homelessness with the comments "must read".

Awesome! Better than described

Came in great condition and very quickly. This is an informative read and has some incredible insight into solving the homeless problem but it neglects issues with homeless women who have adapted to their condition and have a hard time adapting to the working life.

Such a fascinating book. Yes, it is a little outdated, but I think the stories shine through that, and reflect real issues that are valid today.

an eye opening, in depth look at real women who live in homeless shelters. among other things, it shows that the homeless are just as diverse as the housed, and also just how easily we could wind up in the same situation.
I bought this book for an assignment in school. It was found to be a great read for Social Science majors.
