  • "You clarify a global problem and inspire action. Facts, personal anecdotes, even some neuroscience makes this read for a most comprehensive approach to help those who are able to be the boost for others to their own self-reliance. In the telling of our global situation as it is, people have to be inspired into action to help others since you offer so many resources. I hope this has a reach to change the world, from our local communities out, in a time when it needs changing."
