Janina Edwards calmly and clearly presents this data-driven study of U.S. poverty. She does a fine job shifting tone and tempo when the text changes from the authors' words to the words of the subjects they interviewed. Her thoughtful delivery gives this work meaning as she delivers the community profiles, personal stories, and interpretations of data. Her engaging style enables the listener to absorb the hard truths about systemic poverty that this study reveals. The three professors who wrote this audiobook used information from all the counties in the nation and hundreds of cities. They conclude that rural communities actually have greater intractable poverty than cities and that those in places like south Texas, rural Alabama, South Carolina, and Kentucky are "deeply disadvantaged."
