About the Book

Grand Prize Winner of the 2014 Great Southwest Book Festival and Silver Medal Winner of the 2014 Global Ebook Awards - Homeless Hero: Understanding the Soul of Home considers the human mission to know the soul and navigate life experiences. Tapscott's book explores humanity in a way that is vibrantly vivid and personally accessible to the reader. Many questions that we have probably asked ourselves at one time or another are addressed: what is homelessness, why does it exist, are they just on drugs, how do I help, when is helping really enabling, and why does it bother me so much in the first place? Here is a compilation of experiences from Tapscott's experimental journey into life on the streets, his own volunteer work, and his fascinating interviews with individuals utilizing and individuals working for the social service system. Homeless Hero is a case study, an experiment, an adventure, and a multi-layered examination of American society that seeks to help you expand your understanding of homelessness and more importantly your own humanity.
