  Something of Value - A Compelling Read! , 11/21/2004
Reviewer: Matt Goldberg
Something For Nothing is a terrific and important book. Before reading this, I was unaware that shoplifting was such a serious and pervasive problem, and in many cases, a very powerful addiction. Mr. Shulman's book is very well written, and it is an invaluable guide to anyone coming to terms with this addiction. Yet, I believe that this book is not only for those who have struggled with shoplifting, employee theft or other addictive behavior. I say that because Shulman's own story, and the background stories of the others featured, should resonate with all compassionate readers. Furthermore, the fact that he has rebounded from his addiction and is helping others do the same (both as a counselor, and through this book itself) makes this book all the more compelling!
