Customer Reviews

Fantastic, provocative and passionate July 26, 2011
Drawing from inspirational experiences from her own childhood, Dr. Edelman talks to her own children, urging them, in whatever occupation they may choose, to serve the community at large. This woman is so smart and well spoken and has a way of writing and speaking that really touches me and inspires me to do better for children- all children. The book was in as good of shape as promised. I would buy from them again.
