    PROS: Quick read. The subject matter is relevant, even though the book came out in 1990. Does a good job of explaining how several factors contribute to homelessness. Has some pictures. Dispels common myths about homelessness. Contains history about the Great Depression—for example, I didn’t know it lasted 10 years. The Dust Bowl didn’t help, either. Includes a section on homelessness around the world. CONS: The statistics are now outdated. And the essay by a homeless child—though honest and wor PROS: Quick read. The subject matter is relevant, even though the book came out in 1990. Does a good job of explaining how several factors contribute to homelessness. Has some pictures. Dispels common myths about homelessness. Contains history about the Great Depression—for example, I didn’t know it lasted 10 years. The Dust Bowl didn’t help, either. Includes a section on homelessness around the world. CONS: The statistics are now outdated. And the essay by a homeless child—though honest and worthy of winning a prize—turns the “cynic” in me ON when you realize she’s got four brothers. What WAS her mother thinking having 5 children? But alas, it’s not a child’s fault they were born. Though honest of homeless people I’ve seen, the front page picture of a man (who the reader will assume is homeless, of course) smoking a cigarette is another turn-off.

    Overall I was not a big fan of the book, "The Homeless." This book is about the homeless community around the United States. The author, Doug Marx, wrote a nonfictional, book about the lifestyles, struggles, and overall journey of the typical homeless person in America. Doug Marx provided many facts throughout the book while explaining that he believed that America should do a better job of helping homeless people and preventing the situation as a whole.

The author, Doug Marx, wrote a nonfictional, book about the lifestyles, struggles, and overall journey of the typical homeless person in America. Doug Marx provided many facts throughout the book while explaining that he believed that America should do a better job of helping homeless people and preventing the situation as a whole. Doug Marx used a nonfiction factual book to provide knowledge to people about the homeless community. He provides examples and reasons as to why we need to take charge of the uprising problem, such as dealing with the amount of homeless people we have in America. I believed that the style of this book was very effective because there was a wide variety of interesting facts to persuade me into viewing the homeless the same way he expresses throughout the book. He provides things like where homeless people live, how they become homeless, and ways they can try reach a better financial state and find a home. In the book Doug Marx's views are very clear because he gives many reasons as to how we could help preventing the situation any further and how we could begin to help the homeless community. The book suggests that he feels very strongly towards the subject and has done an extended amount of research. Doug Marx opened my eyes to how large the percentage of people that are homeless actually is in America. The book was very enlightening, and informational, although it did not capture my interest very well.
