    Hard to believe this isn't fiction

    I need to think about this one for awhile. I saw these slums. They ARE shocking, especially juxtaposed with the modern hotels. The most important part of the book was in the post script when she says Indian people walk past others who are suffering, not because of their Hindu belief in reincarnation, but because they've seen so much they are deadened by it.

    Great book!

    This is an amazingly vivid and thought-provoking view into the real challenges that face the poor in India and the rest of the world.

    Interesting, but not brilliant.

    In a pile of books of this nature, does this one stand out? Not really. Perhaps, because of the authenticity of the writing and research.
