"It is the best, if not the first, 'how-to' book for people who would innovate in institutions for mentally retarded people. … Organization and writing quality are uniformly good, chapter outlines are remarkably clear … (the book) clearly conveys many good lessons and helpful 'how-to' suggestions for professionals in mental health, social work, and other human services."
