I thought this book was very good. I enjoyed having something I can hold in my hands that lists and describes different social issues and gives me different ideas on how I can make a difference.
The lay-out of the book was very good with the introduction of the issue, four field notes (written by different people) and the “Now What” section. My favorite part of the book, was the “Now What” section at the end of each issues because it made me think and gave me ideas on how I could help. The sections of “Now What,” were reflect, respond, spread the word, share your ideas and discover more (websites).
Would I recommend this book? Yes! This book is perfect for anybody who is interested in learning where the help is needed and how to do it. It is perfect for organizations, young and old.
