Review of 'Poverty, by America' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

This is more of a pamphlet (180-some pages) than a full-length book. The first half summarizes the situation described in lengthier books, like Evicted (his other one), Scarcity, and Random Family, while the second half is more prescriptive. I wasn't entirely buying the latter part but I appreciated the survey in the first half, and I would recommend further reading on those topics, starting with the above books.
