I was introduced to this book by a younger prisoner. I thought that it was an urban fiction book because of the title. After he explained to me what it was about, I picked it for my list of books to read. I was impressed with all of the facts in the book. I remember the Hush Puppy era. I had a pair myself. I’ve also noticed that the smaller your circle, the more intimate it becomes. It also amazed me about crime issues—the “broken windows” policy. I must say that I am now a Gladwell fan. I look forward to reading more of his books and then giving them to others to read. I just hope that they enjoy them as well.
Financial donations are the single factor that limits the number of people we can serve. Just $3 is the average cost of mailing a package of carefully selected books from our library!
