“Naomi Klein is magnificent, and in No Is Not Enough, she has forged a courageous coruscating counter-spell against the hegemonic nightmare that, if left unchecked, will devour us all.”
—Junot Díaz, author, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
“Naomi Klein is a critically important thought-leader in these perilous times, a necessary voice as a courageous movement of movements rises from the ashes of the last election cycle. No Is Not Enough tells a compelling story about where we are, how we got here, and what we should do now. The book is a genuine page-turner—highly engaging and provocative—and provides a fascinating lens through which we can view our current moment. Klein is not preaching to the choir, but framing the moment, connecting necessary dots, and outlining the challenge that lies ahead in clear terms that anyone can understand.”
—Michelle Alexander, author, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
“Naomi Klein is one of the few revolutionary public intellectuals of great integrity and vision. This new book confirms her crucial relevance and essential pertinence.”
—Cornel West, author, Race Matters
“Urgent, timely, and necessary.”
—Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor (Emeritus), MIT
“If you’re wondering how Naomi Klein has managed to produce an essential and gripping book so early in the Trump presidency, it’s because she’s spent her whole intellectual life preparing for just this moment. Trump is the ultimate logo. Every day we watch him try to exploit yet another shock to the system. So this is the book to read—not just the first word on Trump, but in powerful ways the last word as well.”
—Bill McKibben, author, Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist
“Naomi Klein has written an ordinary person’s guide to hope. Read this book.”
—Arundhati Roy, author, The End of Imagination
“Saying No to their shock doctrine is essential but insufficient. Naomi Klein’s new book incites us brilliantly to stiffen our lip, to overcome quickly their calculated shocks, and to interweave our No with a programmatic Yes. It is a manual for emancipation by means of the only weapon we have against orchestrated misanthropy: constructive disobedience.”
—Yanis Varoufakis, DiEM25 co-founder, Professor of Economic Theory, University of Athens
“Naomi Klein shows us that the monstrosity of Donald Trump has not occurred in a vacuum but is the culmination of decades of unchecked economic inequality, racism, militarism, and war. As the shock of Trump as president gives way to anger and the determination to fight, No Is Not Enough makes an urgent intervention in emerging movements. It will take more than ‘resistance’ to beat Trumpism. We need history, politics, strategy, and, most importantly, the optimism that another world is possible. Klein has made a critical contribution to the developing opposition to Trump and the economic disorder that produced him.”
—Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, author, From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation
“Naomi Klein's books are ceaselessly illuminating, daring, and indispensable. As accessible as it is brilliant, No Is Not Enough is an essential blueprint for a worldwide counter-attack against right-wing corporate hegemony.”
—Owen Jones, author, The Establishment: And How They Get Away with It
“From No Logo to The Shock Doctrine to This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein’s books have charted the harmful impact of surging corporate power on culture, jobs, peace, and the planet. In our current hellish situation, who better than Naomi to make sense of this madness, and help us find a way out? This book is a top-of-the-stack summer must-read.”
—Michael Stipe, musician
“No Is Not Enough is Naomi Klein 2.0. It is the accumulation of years of brilliant and layered analysis applied with lightning precision to an understanding of how we got to Trump, and how we can use this moment to bring about another system and world. It is a potent stand for No—and a compelling vision of the Yes to come.”
—Eve Ensler, author, In the Body of the World
“Naomi Klein has written a compelling book that we all need to read and act on. No Is Not Enough is an essential handbook for all people, especially young people, who want to understand the economic, social, and political forces that produced the current crisis we are facing—and how we can effectively organize to win a better world.”
—Danny Glover, actor
“Naomi Klein constructs a common story that allows us to withstand the effects of being shocked. We can act upon that, with intelligence and happiness, to recover our world and the use of adjectives.”
—Gael García Bernal, actor

More importantly, while it is tempting to focus on Trump's individual persona, Klein asks us to see Trump as a product of larger social forces. As Klein shows, Trump is a logical outcome of interlocking systems of power that give the rich, whites, and men impunity over other humans (and non-human species). We cannot effectively resist Trump's unabashedly plutocratic, racist, sexist, and ecocidal agenda unless we understand where it came from, and have a coherent vision of a better world. While this is obviously a short treatise, it does those things very well. Bravo, Ms. Klein.
and "He is also the personification of the merger of humans and corporations— a one-man megabrand, whose wife and children are spin-off brands"
and finally "This is but one attempt to look at how we got to this surreal political moment; how, in concrete ways, it could get a lot worse; and how, if we keep our heads, we might just be able to flip the script and arrive at a radically better future."
If that doesn't get your juices running under high pressure than you need to crawl back into your hole and wait to be consumed just like all the other human resources.
Klein is the perfect person to have written this book. she's spent years writing about super brands and globalization. one main point of the book is that the president himself is the ultimate super brand. she highlights political and cultural trends that led to the rise of our current leader, as well as points out that resistance is not enough. one has to envision a world we want to live in, and propose concrete policies that counter the ones currently being put forth by our leader(s).
I would've liked notes in the physical book itself, but the intro states there are notes/annotations online that accompany the book.
This book is a fast read, and a jolt of inspiration for anyone feeling thoroughly defeated and/or overwhelmed by the direction the country's headed.
