Poverty Safari Reviews

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I don't really know what I was expecting when I went into this, but I was left disappointed anyway.

Shocking, visceral, angry and anger-inducing, Poverty Safari shines a light into the darkest corners of society, highlighting the forgotten, the overlooked. If we have anything about us, we should see this book as a rallying c...
