This short book is an excellent primer for anyone interested in the major issues facing American society, regardless of whether they agree with Bernie's approach or not. Even people who follow politics closely and are familiar with Sanders' core ideas will find the concepts here presented in a way that's straightforward and easy-to-read, with lots of direct evidence to support his arguments.

The paths to participation he lays out are a powerful reminder of the rights and responsibilities of all citizens in a democracy, an especially powerful message in a time of extreme political polarization. This book grapples with big questions and takes a strongly opinionated stance on the best available solutions, but no matter your political preferences, these are issues facing all Americans. Encouraging young people to get informed and get involved is something everyone can get behind, no matter what one thinks of Sanders' specific platform and proposals.
