"Two Yale political scientists, Donald P. Green and Alan S. Gerber, have studied turnout for years. Their findings, based on dozens of controlled experiments done as part of actual campaigns, are summarized in a slim and readable new book called Get Out the Vote!, which is bound to become a bible for politicians and activists of all stripes." Alan B. Krueger, The New York Times, 10/14/2004
"Thankfully, Green and Gerber's recent book represents important innovations in the study of turnout." Pat Lyons, Charles University, Prague, Political Studies Review
"Get Out The Vote! is at once an informal guide for these activists and candidates (they helpfully recommend, for instance, equipping door-to-door canvassers with umbrellas when bad weather threatens) and a serious survey of findings amassed from get out the vote (GOTV) experiments." Gerard Alexander, Claremont Review of Books
