"Each chapter addresses a particular issue, such as health and employment, and interweaves social-policy analysis with touching and in-depth profiles."

- Jeffery M. Karabanow Canadian Book Review Annual

"The most fundamental need (about poverty in communities) --and one directly addressed by this book-- is for a change in attitude. Our Neighbours' Voices poses a challange in its subtitle: Will We Listen? A good way to begin is by reading this book, and in the process examining honestly our own attitudes and prejudices."

- Krystyna Higgins Catholic New Times

"Lorimer, a publisher renowned for its works on justice, has accomplished an aethestically fine crafting ... but the genius of it lies in its judicious blend of statistics, analysis and personal stories, often accompanied by photographs."

- Oscar Cole-Amal Kitchener Record
