"With pitch-perfect tone, Sweeney and Chrastka more than arm library professionals with everything they could possibly need to prepare for an upcoming vote ... It is not hard to imagine every library employee keeping dog-eared, well-worn copies of this resource nearby. Sweeney and Chrastka deserve credit for a very up-to-date approach. The book includes discussion about the recent election of President Donald Trump and notes an increased potential for anti-library rhetoric, devoting a chapter to how best to respond to opponents, even opponents who lie. The authors have turned what can seem daunting and insurmountable into something very possible and approachable." --Voice of Youth Advocates
"If you work in a public library in the U.S., buy this book, read it thoroughly, and use everything it teaches you throughout your library career ... Your budget could depend in it." --Marketing Library Services
"The emphasis of this book is on best practices to help the reader through this difficult yet effective way of gaining and maintaining library funding through political action. Highly recommended for public libraries and any library that receives partial or full public funding." --Catholic Library World
