Dave, watch those sour grapes
Evidently, 'Dave,' a self-described 'hard-working American,' has conservative leanings. Although the people in the stories may be working toward goals that Dave would not share, the book is about self-empowerment and how to take an active role in the form of government we have, which people such as Dave love to brag about, but which cannot succeed without the active participation of its citizens. I'd suggest you re-read the book without the filter of your own political views, but I doubt you could do it. I, for one, am sick of the mindless flag-waving and 'We Support the Troops' stickers that do nothing but support the companies that manufacture the stickers, Dave. And I'd bet you have one or more on your vehicle.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

50 more ways that MoveOn can whine?
This is a very biased book from a very biased organization, MoveOn. As usual, they make simplisitic generalizations that the poor and liberal are so much smarter and better than the middle-class (eveyone who is not 'poor' must be rich apparently) and conservatives. Their view, and the book's view, is that you either agree with them or you're wrong. It's time for MoveON to stop their whining and lying to the the American people and MOVE ON!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Postive, Empowering, Hopeful Book--To Move Country Forward
The stories of regular people in this book--not celebrities or politicians--will make you feel that your voice counts and that you can indeed make a difference. Reading the 50 different essays draws you into each person's world, and you end up cheering them on loudly. The practical tips at the end of each essay offer you something to 'DO' rather than just sit as an armchair citizen. It's hard not to feel excited and empowered reading this book. And it makes you feel proud to be a progressive person who wants our country to be its best. Three cheers for MoveOn and this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
