I really enjoyed the part about how to deal with the media and how to "bridge" your messaging so you are not stuck with the one word answers or get overshadowed by a reporter or a panel of guests who are looking for that shock value moment for ratings. No Howard Dean primal screams for this guy, nor quirky Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich interviews. Thanks coach, I will stay on message and bring it back for the cause!
The author laid out helpful tips and sprinkled in inspiring stories. I highly recommend this book for everyone, not only a Young Activist, but also ANYONE who wants to start almost any long term meaningful project. Bring it home and then share it with someone who'll use it as a playbook for real change.
