by Jessamyn Conrad and Naomi Wolf




Overview -
"Engaging and inspiring . . . Reading this book should make you want to vote."--Barack Obama

Jobs, health care, energy, civil literties, and more more are on the ballot again. In a world of sound bites, deliberate misinformation, and a political scene colored by the blue versus red partisan divide, how does the average educated American find a reliable source that's free of political spin? What You Should Know About Politics . . .
