OrangeReviewStarYager (When Friendship Hurts) asserts that there is direct help available for every kind of life issue, if one only knows where to seek it out. This reference gives readers a head start on that search, listing more than 100 agencies that deal with everything from addiction and financial assistance to pregnancy and eating disorders. In a more positive vein, Yager lists resources for people interested in volunteerism and travel. The entries in all 30 categories are annotated with informative descriptions, contact information, and instructions on how to handle an immediate situation.
VERDICT An excellent reference for all libraries and counseling centers.
