This book is full of ideas for helping make the world a better place. I also appreciate the authors' honesty and understanding that it is unreasonable to take every action in this book, and instead more valuable to act on the areas where you feel you can make the most difference. It is comforting to know that there are people in our world who are writing books with hope of a better tomorrow.

This book was really interesting. It provides the reader with great ideas to make a better world.
However the book is North America oriented and it was published about a decade ago, so many things are different from what I may experience.
I will still recommend this book around me and even give my copy to a very close friend who can make good use of it.

Read this book and become an everyday activist! I am proud of the fact that I took three sociology college courses with Ellis Jones, the writer of this book. Read this book and I guarantee it will make you feel more hopeful, alive and empowered!
