The minute the election was over I started looking for this book. It was obvious this campaign was forging a new path in national politics, and as a grassroots organizer I wanted to know all about it. I found Plouffe's detailed descriptions of strategies fascinating. I am most interested by the campaign's focus on the PROCESS by which things were done, and how successful this tactic was in general. Empowering local organizers and listening to "troops on the ground" is a key grassroots technique, and it is very difficult for professional organizers to yield that much power. The next time I teach community organizing this book will be part of the curriculum!
I wish I had read instead of listening. The painfully bad Spanish pronunciation, especially of the names of some primary characters, was a constant irritant to the listening experience.
Rich and interesting story that unfolds beautifully.
Not if she had to pronounce Spanish words!
