Reviews - What do customers think about Building Communities from the Inside Out: A Path Toward Finding and Mobilizing a Community's Assets?
Kretzmann and McKnight help us see through new eyes. Mar 25, 1999
Building Communities from the Inside Out guides readers to a new, asset-based approach to community building that proves everyone has a gift to share. The book offers practical advice, helpful tools, and powerful stories that help us see communities in new ways--as treasure troves of talent. Kretzmann and McKnight's front-line experience working with neighborhoods across America has created a vital tool for transforming city blocks into neighborhoods and isolated residents into change agents. For anyone who longs to make a difference, this book is a MUST! I am a partner in a consulting firm that guides healthy community initiatives across America--this book is one of my most valued resources.
Revolutionary new paradigm for community development Oct 19, 1998
Graphics a little clunky. Besides that, this is an outstanding book, with outstanding success stories and ideas, on building local "capacity" to handle projects. Everyone in the field, in my area, is excited about the ideas in this book. The authors are even better in person. You cannot understand the field without the ideas in this book.
