Jamie Court’s The Progressive’s Guide to Raising Hell received the following web-exclusive review from Publisher’s Weekly on Monday. Have a look!

Americans angry about the state of their government or the fallout from the BP oil disaster might find in Court’s persuasive manifesto a cause for action. As the president of Consumer Watchdog, the California-based consumer advocacy organization, Court has gone toe-to-toe with powerful politicians and corporations–and won. Without straying far from Advocacy 101, Court provides a how-to on taking a stand and making a difference. Following “10 rules of Populist Power,” “Rousing Public Opinion in a New Media Age” explores the use of the Internet to rally and mobilize support. For instance, MoveOn, with over five million members, has become “one of the most successful Internet-based political groups in America.” Court also outlines how to build a “Populist 2.0 Platform” using e-advocacy, blogging, social media, and other technologies. Other chapters serve as case studies for taking on energy companies (the author was once recruited into a California task force on gas prices), Wall Street, and Governor Schwarzenegger (“Taming Arnold”). With great accessibility and a fired-up attitude, Court brings his lessons in empowerment to the people. (Sept.)
