It was a fast read, I couldn't put it down.

"Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions That Win - And Last" is well worth the read for leaders of these types of political organizations.

If someone is starting out in politics and wants to learn, from Kyrsten's experience, both how to fail at gaining legislative victories -- and MORE IMPORTANTLY how to succeed -- then this is a must-read primer. Funny at times, this is a well-written manifesto by an up-and-coming politician who's learning how to succeed in building coalitions. In fact, any reader will benefit from taking on board her ideas.

Excellent book, highly recommend. Although I've bought countless books on Amazon over the past 10 years, this is the first time I feel compelled to write a review.

I love the message of this book: In order to be effective in driving positive change, you must build support from across constituencies. In order to do this, you must let go of pre-conceived notions of what successful outcomes are, and instead focus on shared values, common interests, and together agree on what success might look like.

The author, Kyrsten Sinema, embodies a fresh voice in progressive politics. She's young, she's energetic, she's passionate, and she's willing to partner with anyone to achieve common goals based on her belief that we are more alike than different, and that most people involved in the political process have good intentions. Our world needs a lot of more people like that involved in the policy setting process.

If you have been frustrated when trying to find that thin line between standing up for what you know is right and getting things done - especially when lots of other people are involved - you'll find this little book useful.

As honest and funny as the author is, (and you will hear her voice as clear as a bell) her message is serious and direct. Change must become real. Or, it doesn't become change. And, if it is real change, your're starting out as the minority.

How do you make real change a reality when you're outnumbered? Make it focused, short-term, specific, value-based. Then find the values you have in common with people who see themselves as different than you. Go where they are, meet them there.

Find common cause: create coalition. If it can work in the Arizona legislature, it can work anywhere.

Read it, and pass it on. Use it.

Unite and Conquer is written in Kyrsten Sinema's fresh and knowledgeable voice. It is not your every day book on politics, it is better! Like a field guide from someone who has been there before. The information shared in Unite and Conquer is real hands-on advice and information that can be used not only in politics, it can be used in personal and professional relationships as well. Read this book, you will be glad you did.

I did the "look inside this book" and read the table of contents and first few pages. Wow, right away she nailed it and gave me better insight and hope for the growth and evolving out of the partisan mess radical right supporters have brought to the political landscape.

The Native Americans who wrote and structured our current constitution and form of Government warned us not to allow political parties, but at the Constitutional congress that was the one thing left in, and we can look back now historically and see the Native American wisdom was as usual correct and it has hindered our country's greatness; and today leads to those very people who are destroying our constitution at the same time proclaiming they are patriots (the radical right).

I am now a big supporter of Rep. Sinema and pray she remains the inspirational leader for us she demonstrates daily.

Sometimes aggression is not the best way to get things done. "Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions That Win - And Last" is a different approach to business ideals that suggest putting away the competition in favor of uniting to get things done. Drawing from her own wisdom from the campaign trail and her own political battles, author Kyrsten Sinema provides real-world proven examples for her theories. "Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions That Win - And Last" is well worth the read for leaders of these types of political organizations.

I've had the pleasure of hearing Kyrsten Sinema speak about her book and what led her to her beliefs. She is a compelling and passionate speaker who has the advantage of being brilliant as well as beautiful. I am convinced she will use her skills to build coalitions that will take her to Washington where she will have many opportunities to sit in seats of power. Watch this woman. She is definitely going places.
