Summary: "This 136 page book (in the first edition) has become one of our best sellers (15,000 copies). It is used around the world, and is a textbook in many human service programs. It is used by high schools teachers, college professors and as a great human interest story. The book details the personal story of helping Judith Snow move out of an institution and into the community. In the process, a circle of support was born that not only helped Judith, but changed the lives of all involved. The message is powerful and simple: None of us can deal with a crisis alone. The book explains the formation of the "Joshua Committee" as Judith Snow named her Circle of Support. John O'Brien's 10 page afterward is a brilliant essay about the message of hope embedded in the book." - PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
