Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

For everyone who has ever wondered "how on earth" or "why in the world" people do the dirty work of prison guards, cops, community police, long-distance truck drivers, secretaries, nurses, HIV/AIDS/addiction caregivers, forensic pathologists and their technicians, or even cultural ethnographers in the academy, this book will be a tantalizing, provocative, enlightening, and entertaining read.

--H.L. "Bud" Goodall, Jr., Director and Professor at the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication, Arizona State University
