Kirkus Reviews writes: "Powerful and revealing testimony to the injustices of manual labor, infused with inspiration for global change...San Diego lawyer Goria assembles a series of eye-opening interviews by people hidden in the trenches of manual labor, a flourishing trade eclipsed by workplace grievances and global economic stratification. This unique compilation of histories demands attention and collectively has the impetus to inspire change." Invisible Hands is currently taught at colleges and universities across the country.
