Central to progress

I find Accountable to be a clear and concise way to acquire important and workable issues for collective progress. If you are in need of knowing the important issues to make a difference, Accountable is the right book. Historic is this time! With the election of Barack Obama, the nation has sent a clear message that we are all Americans. Now, regardless of difference, we are all required to understand more about become active citizens in our democracy. Looking for a way to remain active, Accountable makes sense. Since better engagement is required, I have purchased the audio version to play around the house, so no one in the house can claim they are unaware of the direction to progress. Tavis, your leadership grants us a seat at a nation's table. Thanks
