  A Spectacular Breakthrough in the Fight Against Poverty
  (St. Martin's Press-2000, paperback-2005)
  "In this interesting book, Gary MacDougal goes well beyond analysis and theory. His story takes you directly to the people and communities involved, and it actually provides practical answers to some of our most difficult welfare problems. The whole country can learn from this timely and engaging new book."
William Julius Wilson, Harvard University
"At UPS we’ve been lucky to hire sixty thousand former welfare recipients and we’re a better company because of them. 'Make a Difference' is a lively, example-filled story that shows how this works—a fascinating read for anyone."
Mike Eskew, CEO, United Parcel Service
