I have been following Greg Mitchell's OWS blog since the very beginning. I check first thing in the morning to see what has taken place overnight and it is the last thing I look at before going to bed. This version adds new material that adds depth and interest to the story. And since part of the $3 is going to OWS, what a deal. I heartily recommend reading how a few people with persistence and grace, have changed the course of history.

This book provides a great time line of the Occupy Wall Street phenomena (for lack of a better word) spreading across the world. I've been following Greg Mitchell's blog as a pithy, always current distillation of what is going on at #OWS. He's got a sense of history, politics, and, thank god, humor. He's a wonderful guide to this movement for those of us that are primarily spectators due to circumstance.

This book is simply a daily summary of each of the most interesting events related to the protests. It is written in a very personal style in which you get a sense a somewhat weathered, been-there, canny uncle is taking you through the day's OWS events.

Unfortunately missing are the photos that accompany his blog, but there are hyperlinks that allow you to click into the photos, as well as other relevant articles.

I see this book as a great reference source for researchers in the future. It is not a narrative or a comprehensive analysis of the movement, simply each day's listings of events. It's kinda too early for the former -- these are indeed the early days of OWS.

Greg Mitchell has been one of my favorite authors for years. I am not of the same political affiliation as Greg but the brilliance of his writings really helps balance the politics of people like me. He gives you hard hitting theories backed up by facts in his books. Many on the left and many on the right have misunderstood the OWS movement. As a parent of three 20 something year old kids, I see the struggles first hand. Yes my right wing friends, there were some troublemakers at many of the rallies. But only a few. And my left wing friends, there are some 26 year-olds that bust there butts working 14-16 hour days on Wall Street and are rewarded but not like their bosses. Greg gives you almost hourly updates of what he saw. The power of social media is touched upon. Whatever you may feel about these kids, it is still tough paying back school loans without a job. Greg Mitchell's witness to the OWS movement gives a first hand account of what went on. Great reading and highly recommended!
