    Highly Recommend this book for all professionals to read

    This is a book that should be read by everyone. It gives such great insights into how who we are and how we react depends so much on our exconomic situations. I was amazed with the many examples of illustrations of how different people respond and why they respond as they do. It has changed how I view othes and how I believe we should respond to the needs of others. This should be required reading for all teachers, social workers, nurses, clergy, physicians and law enforcement. I highly recommend this book.
