Get Opinionated

A Progressive's Guide to Finding Your Voice (and Taking a Little Action)

By Amanda Marcotte

$15.95 USD, Trade Paper Original, April 2010

For those who like their politics blunt, raw, and uncompromising comes Get Opinionated—a guide to the issues you care about: environmentalism, reproductive rights and access, taxes and public wealth, GLBTQ rights, health care, the War on Terror, the War on Drugs, and the Culture Wars.

Get Opinionated will help you find your political voice and galvanize you into action—or at least help you understand which issues you care about (or which ones most piss you off)—and why.
