I read this book as an introduction to community organization because I am starting a series of training sessions in an effort to be a social justice leader in the TC Jewish community I really appreciate Gecan s style He explains his points in four sections gives a few anecdotes as examples and then signs off I don t like when books go on and on for no apparent reason and a lot of recent nonfiction is guilty of thisI also found the biographical information interesting because Gecan grew up in Chicago and was a survivor of the Our Lady of Angels fire
