Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…a small easy-to read volume. They write in a very informal way, designed to encourage people to get out there and do something to help others as a means to find their own passion. This is a book that might be useful for a course in service learning because there are sections that discuss topics such as helping skills, especially listening and altruism, and there are scholarly references to other material." (PsycCRITIQUES, November 11, 2009)
