The Glass Castle will make you laugh and cry. It is so touching, it reaches you places deep down in your heart. It is moving and inspiring. It is the story about how a little girl survived her childhood with unreliable, careless parents, fleeing one wreck to the next, starving and sometimes not well sheltered. But the way the story is told makes you feel like it was the most normal thing in the world not to have anything to eat or a roof over your head. It is told in a light-hearted manner, as if she had forgiven her parents for her childhood.
It is a beautiful, yet sad biography of a little girl.

Yunus gives a detailed biography on the birth and growth of the microfinance idea. He tells touching stories about his encounters with the borrowers and the hard time he had convincing them that he was not some kind of villain from the local Mafia. This book is inspiring. It gives hope to the people who want to help fight poverty but do not know how. They style in which it was written makes it hard to put the book away. It is captivating, humorous and inspiring.

This book is the biography of Jeanette Walls' grandmother.
I must say, her first book was by far better. This second book however is still quite a good book.

This book is a very good reference for development aid projects. It profoundly describes the problems and the solutions, both the successful and the failures. It analyzes the failures and gives sufficient background information about the problems (i.e. weather, levels of education, reasons behind the poverty, etc). It is also not bias towards a single organism or boring with too many technicalities. Great book!

The story is told by a young girl. It is not only funny and fresh, but also so captivating that you do not want to put the book down till you finished it. One of the best book I've read so far.
