This is a must read for anyone interested in making a difference in the world.Bond and Exley share 22 lessons from the impressive Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. The core of the book is about people, and what they can do when asked to do something meaningful; a revolution happens.

We can go up against big money and win.
Bond and Exley

The efforts of people must be supported with smart technology. This was not only the game changer for Bernie but Jeremy Corbyn. Those who led the Corbyn campaign took the rules seriously and nearly brought the UK government to a standstill.

The book is a challenge to the cautious steps of change makers, and a direct protest to Saul Alinsky and his organising methodology. Alinsky, regarded as the founder of modern day community organising, teaches organising to the negotiating table, in his book Rules for Radicals . Alinsky believed change happens through negotiation, and we must train people to fight for the biggest crumbs of the pie.

Big organising on the other hand is about changing the very nature of government,

electing revolutionaries to office at all levels of government is some of the necessary work of the revolution
Bond and Exley

Bond and Exley’s hard work optimism is refreshing and poignant. The revolutionaries are not messing about. With hearts and minds brimmed with hope and strategy, they want to teach you how to win. Bernie failed to get to power, but the work of hundreds of thousands of Bernie volunteers have left something to be taken up by all of us.
