Review by: Sarah Statz Cords, Library Journal - March 15, 2008
Sociologist Newman and journalist Chen alert readers to the 57 million Americans existing on the razor-thin margin between poverty and middle-class life. The authors successfully combine their research with illuminating personal interviews.

“This revealing exposé gives voice to this growing segment of the population.”
Review: Publishers Weekly - July 9, 2007
