About the Author

In 2004 Rob and a friend, college seniors and political opposites, compiled and edited the country s first non-partisan political anthology, What We Think: Young Voters Speak Out. As a result of his work on that project, Rob was interviewed on CNN, MSNBC, and had a one-hour long book presentation air in it s entirety on CSPAN s Book TV. In 2005, Rob graduated Magna cum Laude with a degree in finance from Gonzaga University. He s an avid traveler who has lived in four countries and visited over thirty. He speaks fluent German and conversational Spanish and Italian. Rob is deeply passionate about young voters, has delivered keynote addresses on the topic at venues across the country and, for the past four years, has dedicated himself to learning about his peers and the profoundly powerful voting bloc of 44 million they represent.

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a book that goes into deep analysis of the current campaigns for the American presidency, or for a book that gives a history of American politics, this isn't the book you're looking for. But, if you are a political junkie like myself and want some light-hearted reading about politics to compliment the daily dose of CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and the like, then this is what you need.

The author is young and touts his already impressive resume of traveling the globe and meeting people from all over the world. His youth and his multicultural experience serve him well, as he is able to cull from a wide range of sources good insight into the future of American politics. Some stories made me laugh, others made me excited, some even frustrated - but without a doubt, by the end I had a better feeling for the political landscape that is to come. What better to have in the midst of a presidential race that has been focused on 'change'?

Format: Paperback
This is the best book on young voters possible! It is smart, witty, as disarming and hopeful as they are and scholarly at the same time. Rob gets young voters, the art of writing, and humanity with a sweep of an exceptionally intelligent pen. As you read, you say, "He didn't just say that, did he?" He did and he hit the the core and the truth of the issue and gives the reader gift after gift on insight on this most remarkable generation to come along---possible ever. Thank God that they at least have Rob as the spokesperson they are being denied by a press who has no idea of who these 44,000,000 young voters are!

Format: Paperback
"Voting With Our Pants Down" is a narrative of current politics and the views of young voters who are ready to take on the world. The author draws on personal experiences ranging from dorm room antics to traveling abroad post 9-11. He is insightful, educated on political topics, and witty.

Grabow draws heavily from submissions to his first book, "What We Think" and uses those topics to illustrate the young voter psyche. Being a member of the Millennial Generation, Grabow can write about his peers in a way very few other (and older) authors can. Refraining from touting much of his own political leanings, Grabow instead relies on statistics (and sometimes personal experience) to explain how youth are voting. After reading this book it is clear the author knows his subject matter personally. As a fellow member of the Millennial Generation, I appreciate the research and candor in depicting young voters.

Ever wonder why the youth of this country is so drawn to Barack Obama? Grabow answers this question and more in a fun, interesting, and insightful book about the youth vote. A great read for parents, teachers, and the kids that continue to perplex them.
