Editorial Reviews

Review

Mandate for Change presents the change we really do need from a who?s who of progressive thinkers who?ve worked for change for years. This is a must read for the new administration and for all who want to help them succeeddddd (Julian Bond, Chairman Emeritus, NAACP)

This collection of essays, by a veritable who's who of liberal activists, offers a top-to-bottom agenda for change. (Colloquy, Winter 2010)

As the failed ideas of the neoconservatives and the free-market fundamentalists come crashing down, here is a brilliant blueprint for the principles and the policies and the politics that can guide a new and more humane era of American history. (Barbara Ehrenreich, author of This Land is Their Land and Nickled and Dimed)

Mandate for Change presents the change we really do need from a who’s who of progressive thinkers who’ve worked for change for years. This is a must read for the new administration and for all who want to help them succeed (Julian Bond, Chairman Emeritus, NAACP)

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert David STEELE Vivas HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 1, 2010
Format: Paperback
I would normally have bought this book, I used past Mandate for Change books to devise the twelve core policies for Earth Intelligence Network (Agriculture, Diplomacy, Economy, Education, Energy, Family, Health, Justice, Immigration, Security, Society, Water), and I was very intrigued by the title but there are three strikes here:

1) Publisher has not done their job in posting table of contents and other descriptive materials.

2) The book is way too expensive, it costs a penny a page for books in lots of 2,500 or so, the publisher is being greedy and not serving the public interest--the author should go with Amazon's books on demand or post the book free online.

3) No other comments? It would appear neither the existing Administration nor anyone else cares about what's in this book. I would, if it were better documented and more reasonably prices.

Strike three, this book is OUT.

BUT: If anyone has this book and wants to share the Table of Contents, I would be very interested, my contact information is on the About page of PBI/PIB.

To access my other 1,500 or so reviews, 99% non-fiction, in 98 categories, use Phi Beta Iota, the Public Intelligence Blog, where all reviews lead back to Amazon pages for the respective books.

My own two mandate for change books, both free online as well as here at Amazon:
