San Francisco Tenderloin: A History

San Francisco Tenderloin Cover Image

Read History presented so wonderfully about this, some would say, infamous neighborhood.

Link directly to San Francisco Tenderloin at Voyeur's Bookstore; the bookstore with a selection that you will not find any place else.

Title: San Francisco Tenderloin

Item: Book, Used, Excellent Condition

Author: Larry Wonderling, Ph.D.

Subtitle: Heroes, Demons, Angels, & Other True Stories

"The notorious San Francisco Tenderloin and the practice of psychotherapy may never be viewed the same after reading this fiercely controversial nonfiction book. It begins by chronicling the Tenderloin's hundred-year legacy while debunking the notorious part of its reputation. "

"This sets the stage for incredible stories of extraordinary Tenderloin people that unfolded during their close relationship with the author, a clinical psychologist. It is the only book that explores the Tenderloin in such depth, humanizes its exceptional people with such compassion and justifies an unorthodox practice of psychotherapy with such candor. " -from the back cover of the book.

A must-read for anyone who wants more that just a passing acquaintance with San Francisco's rich history. This is an essential neighborhood, and, an essential book about it. Don't just visit, but, gain an insight into this magnificent city.
