Despite living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, more than 45 million people in America fall below the poverty line. Struggling to make ends meet, these individuals are familiar faces. You see them on the street, in the news, on TV, outside your house, on your way to work... They are your neighbors, coworkers, friends, acquaintances and possibly even family. You may have even experienced a similar situation yourself. This book is for you. Escaping Poverty is a collection of stories from those who have felt what it is like to be one of the 'have-nots' and are still trying to make it in America. They have not given up on their dreams. Nor should you.  Some share how they were able to rise from abject poverty to become self-made millionaires.  Others relate their daily struggles as they try to blend in with the "middle class" hiding the 'secret' of their financial hardship. Still others escaped life on the streets from drug-addiction.  Each person has a unique story to tell about their journey. Escaping Poverty is a truly worthwhile read about a subject to which many can relate.

Review:

"an absolutely worthwhile read... a simply wonderful compendium of stories...the perspective [this book] gives is an important one - that many of those who are living in poverty are willing to do just about anything to get out of it; they are not the "lazy bums" that some would like to label them. " - Tracy A. Fischer, Readers' Favorite, 5 Starred Review

"Inspirational, thought-provoking and personal, these true-life accounts are recommended as a 'must have' anecdote to any third-party analysis of the state and sociology of poverty in modern-day America. It's here, with this collection and these accounts, that the real story truly begins." - Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review
