What People are Saying About This
"Here is a book that will speak to every generation. David Brown challenges the conventional wisdom that government is either the problem or the solution. Instead, Change-Makers offers critical and imaginative insights into how to reconstruct both professional and public life."
"Like a sober, committed, and perspicacious member of the family, David Brown, in The Real Change-Makers, calls us to wake up from our fog of dysfunctional delusions about finding someone to rescue us as a nation. The solution is not experts or government, left or right, politicians or celebrities. It is a rekindled belief in 'We the People', the opening premise of the nation's constitutional Preambleand a commitment to do the hard work to make it so."
"The most critical question in a democracy is what citizens shouldand cando. This book addresses these questions critically but with a deep appreciation for the extraordinary contributions of supposedly ordinary Americans. David Brown takes us to the hidden wellsprings of power in everyday democracy."
"David Brown's book is an eloquent and compelling argument for how we might fix much that ails us as a nation, one that transcends the zero-sum thinking and ideological grandstanding that permeates so much of the public conversation today, and that concludes with a call to our better selves. The answer, The Real Change-Makers underscores, isn't out thereit is in each of us and in the decisions we make, in our work as citizens determined to leave the world better for generations to come. Read this book, take it to heart, and use it as a blueprint for the good life."
