Get Opinionated: A Progressive's Guide to Finding Your Voice (and Taking a Little Action)

Front Cover
Basic Books, Mar 16, 2010 - Political Science - 256 pages
For those who like their politics blunt, raw, and uncompromising comes Get Opinionated—a guide to the issues you care about: environmentalism, reproductive rights and access, taxes and public wealth, GLBTQ rights, health care, the War on Terror, the War on Drugs, and the Culture Wars.

Get Opinionated will help you find your political voice and galvanize you into action—or at least help you understand which issues you care about (or which ones most piss you off)—and why.
