Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

It’s time for the handbooks on political involvement leading up to the election, and here’s one from Cohen, the amiable co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and president of online activist group TrueMajorityACTION.org, and co-author Salzman, a nonprorfit communications consultant. Many of the tips are familiar (write an op-ed piece, help with voter registration), some are more creative (Dress in a duck costume and carry a sign "Bush Is Ducking the Debates"), and some are just corny ("Pets for Regime Change"), as is the humor at times. Elsewhere, it can be downright ad hominem ("You may ask yourself, ‘Will my pet want to help?’..a few pets may be swayed by Dubya’s monkey-like looks…"). But for those who want to take action, there are many useful tips here, complete with step-by-step instructions and information on resources. And the authors run through the numbers from 2000 to convince independents and Greens not to vote for Nader this time around.

Whatever your political stripe, it is easy for the ordinary voter to feel that there is nothing they can do to affect political change. It outlines ways that almost anyone can get involved in national campaigns and make a difference. This book happens to be for those who favor re-defeating Bush, but it could be used by anyone by just substituting names. Each idea comes with suggestions for 3 different groups; busy people, people with a little time on their hands, and partisans with lots of time, motivation, and energy.
With campaign finance out of control (despite McCain-Feingold) and Florida 2000, many feel that individuals don't have a voice. This book may change their opinion.
I'm already putting one of their ideas for busy people to use. We are inviting people to a party in honor of Bush's military service. If you send a donation to John Kerry, you don't have to actually attend the party, but we'll provide a scrap of napkin to support your claim that you did.

This is a great source of ideas for those of us think it is time for a new regime in the White House.
The book is full of ideas on how to give your friends and acquaintances a gentle nudge towards the voting booth. As some singer once observed: "A##holes get elected, 'cause A##holes get to vote." The book pushes the idea that if more eligible voters went to the polls, democracy, and probably Democrats, would thrive.
The book offers something for everyone, from busy practical people to committed political "guerillas" who share the goal of putting a new president in the White House. It is also very funny, full of Bushisms, limericks, and parody song lyrics that are irresistable.
When you are done with your copy, put it in the lunch room at your office, and spread the word.

Format: Paperback
Most current affairs tomes are dense and daunting. This one's hilarious and helpful at the same time. While exposing the president's record, it offers specific how-to's on what people can actually do to dump Bush. Not just the standard struff like voter registration, but innovative activities like organizing a "Pub Crawl" or chalk stamping the sidewalk. Fun and useful, from the guy who brought us Cherry Garcia.

Format: Paperback
After months of anti-Bush books(Franken, Moore, Ivins) and books that layout the failed policies of this administration (Clark, O'Neil, Woodward), finally a book that tells people to stop complaining and focus that energy into action.
With the same creative whimsy that Ben Cohen marketed ice cream, he and Salzman encourage people to get involved in our democracy in fun ways. Sure this book has the typical, put a yard sign up type of stuff, but it also gives many creative ideas that I haven't seen before in a political book, like doing a pub crawl (chapter: Bars for Social Change).
I really enjoyed this book and it makes a wonderful guide for anyone wanting to make a difference in this election season.
