"An eloquent voice for Americans too often ignored or scapegoated."--Booklist

"A valuable firsthand account of a street survivor's harrowing experiences." --Kirkus Reviews

"Read Each One Teach One as the epic of a man's awakening to community and purpose from a life lived on the bounce between our savage so-called 'social' institutions and the streets. Or read it as a raw bulletin from the fractured front of a class war too many in our country want to ignore. Either way, this is an urgent, vital, necessary book."

--Fred Pfeil, author of What They Tell You to Forget
