Summary
Unlike many books about adult literacy, which focus on abstract concepts related to test scores, this volume develops an understanding of literacy and illiteracy through the engaging life stories of twelve adults from diverse backgrounds living in the United States. In the process of coming to know these adults, we learn, contrary to commonly held assumptions and beliefs, that adults with limited literacy skills work hard and long, make limited use of public resources, and do use technology
