Couldn't pause, awesome approach to bridging the gap.

I couldn't stop listening to the audio book. It consumed my whole day. I replayed certain segments for note taking and better understanding. I will require my management team to read the book or listen to the audible. A must read for teachers and academic administrators. While this is a great resource for college level , I believe the greatest impact is K-12. We can change a generation by using the BOP teachings.

Great Book to help understand Poverty

This book certainly was an eye-opening! The biggest takeaway was the "hidden class rules". I never thought about it but that is a major barrier for those new to our culture and to those in poverty. This is a MUST read for those working with people in poverty and those organization that want to be inclusive. HUD HRA employees...this would be a great resource book.
