    This is a very cutting book about the US welfare system. It's partly the personal memoir of a welfare recipient who became an advocate with the Welfare Rights Organization, but it's also a wide-ranging expose of what's wrong with a system that -- experienced from the seamy underside -- seems to be designed to keep American families desperately poor. It's not a balanced view, but it's very much worth reading.

    Read this several years ago, but I remember it being very illuminating. One of those books I'd like to force a lot of people to read. My failing memory keeps it from getting the full five stars.

    The book makes a very strong beginning by giving a detailed and first hand account of all the absurdities of the wellfare system that users have to experience everday. Her words feel very honest and very heart felt. Yet as the book progresses she begins to deepen and deepen into the politics of welfare, and though she might be right in most of her descriptions, she keeps filtering rage through her words... which makes the book very tough and tiring to read.
