Publisher's Summary

In this rousing call to leadership, the self-described millennial spokesperson for the culture, CNN’s designated "woke AF" former commentator, and the youngest national press secretary in the history of the United States shares her take-no-prisoners approach to life, politics, and career success, and shows a new generation how to be loud and powerful in their own right.

Many people - most notably white older men - may try to stop Symone Sanders from speaking up and out. But Symone will not shut up. And neither should you. In this inspiring call to action, Symone tells stories from her own life of not-shutting-up alongside loud young revolutionaries who came before her to help you find your authentic voice and use it to your advantage; to fight ideological battles more effectively; and to resist those who try to silence you. 

We are all gurus, masterminds, artists, entrepreneurs - we are the change agents we have been waiting for. It is us. And the time is right now. I know you’re wondering, “But how?” And we don’t have all the answers! Symone is the first to admit we’re all winging it in one way or another. But the point is we’re out there doing it. So get started. Open your mouth and start talking. Loudly. No You Shut Up goes beyond the surplus of “Vote-or-Die” books we’ve seen before. Because change doesn’t just happen at the ballot box. We need people fighting oppression, injustice, and inequality - in the workplace, on the cultural battlefield, in government, in every corner of the world. 

With spirited storytelling filtered through a voice that cannot and will not be ignored, Symone inspires you to start now. You don’t need to have all the answers, or wait your turn to help create the change you want to see. All you need is a new toolbox, an unshakable commitment, and the confidence and guidance to wield those tools effectively.

Inspired

Symone, I appreciate your honestly and candor. In reading your book I feel like I was having a conversation with a friend. As a fellow YP trying to break the mold, I could relate to some of your adversities but as a white woman I also appreciate you digging into your experiences as a black woman. (BLM!!). As an acquaintance, fellow Creighton alum, Omaha Native and young person seeking change in our political climate I learned a lot from your book, enjoyed your stories, and also felt your call to action. Thank you!

Authenticity!

No, You Shut Up is inspirational and raw! Of course, I was going to purchase the audio version. There's no better way to enjoy this book than to have Ms. Sanders narrate it. Thank you for your honesty.

Piece of Advice — Recommend this audiobook!

I enjoyed listening to Ms. Sanders discuss her professional journey. Here, she shares her passion for politics and for youth advocacy, her impressive range of knowledge on a variety of topics important to so many Americans, and her unflinching belief in herself as a change agent. Many young women, especially young women of color, would benefit from Sanders’ self reflection and pieces of advice. Even more, Sanders is out here doing the work while remaining true to herself. I look forward to more great things from Ms. Symone Sanders!!!

painfully honest and inspiring

If we could only all learn to be honest with ourselves and committed to the passions that we claim to have then we would truly have a different outcome. I actually went through this book faster than I thought it's a winner

No you shut up

Well for me I had to read this for school I did not know to much about her until we started to talk about woman of color. This book was very good and for a young woman of color I was very happy to see that she is on the top for doing what is right for our country. What I would say there is nothing to say that was bad because I feel like she really told the truth in this book and talked about were she came from and that is hard sometimes. For me when people talk about them selfs I do get bored sometimes but symone's story was really interesting and wanted me to keep flipping the pages .

Shut up and Do the Work!

Loved this informative story of growth in the world of politics. I listened to the audio with my 15 and 19 yr old daughters and we enjoyed hearing Symone Sanders telling ups and downs and back up again growth journey. Her topics were engaging so I could have a different type of discussions with my daughters on rules of engagement when they get out in the real world.

Refreshing and vibrant.

I love listening to Sanders commentary live, which is what made me listen to this book. I wanted to hear her voice for an extended period. I was not disappointed. The text was coherent, entertaining and easy to follow in listening format (I am a reader and didn't think I would enjoy an Audible book. This first experience was stellar. An awesome book for Millennials.
