    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthIt amazes me how much I have in common with Linda Tirdao I like Tirado had a caring family and a relatively privileged upbringing I like Tirado spent my 20s taking low paying jobs and making shitty financial choices while living an ideal existence in Europe And as with Tirado shit got real when I had a child But there alas our paths diverge I returned to the USA and turned my writing into a side business while I went to graduate school When shit hit the fan during my second year of grad school and I really was in poverty not the chosen kind this time I learned a valuable lesson no one owes you a damn thing so be grateful for the friends and communities that help you and work your ass off to get out of it Linda Tirado instead k

    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthThis book just ticked me off The thesis statement seems to be Why bother trying As someone who has a background not dissimilar from the author's I'm mad that she feels she is explaining my life to rich people By her own admission she has a diagnosed anger management problem for which she has refused treatment She wants a doctor who she can call when she feels like it won't demand to see her in person and will write pr

    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthI was prepared to be humbled by the harsh reality of this woman's life but instead I felt judged by her and her shitty attitude towards anyone who isn't living paycheck to paycheck As if anyone not barely scraping by is a selfish self absorbed asshole who has no idea what stress is Tirado can write I’ll give her that She's an excellent and very funny writer But she wrote the book to counter stereotypes about poverty and in combatting judgement she judges harshly everyone who is not like her If you care about feeding your children healthy organic food having durable strollers recyc

    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthBefore I review this book a brief account of my bona fides are in order I am a child of privilege and I have really always lived in privilege There have been times when money was tight but that was because of mismanagement of resources not because the resources weren't there I worked as a volunteer with battered women in the mid 80s professionally at a food bank in the mid 90s and then recently again as a volunteer for residential program for homeless men and for a feeding program for seniors I have also worked professionally with school systems educators and students many of them in inner cities or poor rural regionsWhile Linda Tirado is probably better educated and articulate than a lot of the people I've worked with she is telling their story or a version of their story This is the truth about what it means to be poor in the US and why it is so profoundly difficult to get un poor even with a bunch of advantages like some educationTh

    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthThis is a tough book to review I almost feel like any opinion I express will make someone mad Since I have mixed opinions I might be able to tick off nearly everyone First of all this was a courageous book It takes a lot of nerve to write a book like this It is also an angry book and a very defensive one This author is poor very ticked off about it engages in a lot of self destructive behavior spends a lot of time justifying that and telling rich people what they ought to do Her definition of rich Anyone who can go to the bathroom at work without permission It's abrasive and full of profanity There is no understanding at all of economic laws or the problems of business The book demands a lot from its readersI am a middle class person although hardly a rich one I can however go to the bathroom when I want I took a lot of economics classes My husband used to own his own business I under

    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthI received this book through a Goodreads giveaway and the cover stated Uncorrected Proof For Limited Distribution I rated this book one star but it did not deserve even that The class envy and irrational fury was palpable from page 1 Though the author stated a couple of times that she was speaking for herself on nearly every page she was definitely attempting to give the impression that her bad temper her description and nasty attitude were nearly universal among poor people I was born into a poor family in the southern coalfields of West Virginia The only folks I knew for many many years were poor My husband was from an even poorer family in north central West Virginia poor enough that most days there wasn't enough to eat In fact after spending many years in the middle class we now find ourselves back down at the federal poverty level I never make that capital letters met any full caps on that too poor person with this author's attitude The folks I knew were goo

    READ & DOWNLOAD Hand to Mouth 107 Hand to MouthI wasn't going to review this book looking over other reviews and gleaning a bit from social media it feels vaguely counterproductive But I'm still writing so let's give it a shot and I'll explain why the reticenceBasically Linda Tirado finds herself propelled onto bookshelves everywhere when a random post she wrote about living an impoverished life goes viral and wrote a book that's essentially that same post but with several hundred pages stuffed into it a preface by Barbara Ehrenreich As I recall thinking as I neared the end of the book that this was essentially a letter to
