The Trump Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know about Living Through What You Hoped Would Never Happen (Paperback)
Whether you are a supporter of Trump, or angry over the outcome of the election, the most important thing to learn from this stunning outcome is how to proactively work towards change to ensure Americans that their rights and needs will still be intact in the new administration.
Gene Stone has compiled a book outlining major issues, and has set up the format of the book with a history of the issue, how the issue was dealt with in the Obama administration, and the possible direction Trump is planning, This book would be an excellent read for all young Americans, or as required reading in an AP Government class. These young people would come out with a better understanding of how to work towards ensuring the best possible future for their generation.
I recommend this as a MUST read for those 16-25 years old, and also to anyone interested in learning how certain issues were passed into laws during various administrations.— Dianne
Don't despair. Don't retreat. Fight back.
The stunning election of Donald J. Trump rocked an already divided America and left scores of citizens, including the nearly sixty-five million voters who supported Hillary Clinton, feeling bereft and powerless. Now, Gene Stone, author of The Bush Survival Bible, offers invaluable guidance and concrete solutions they can use to make a difference in this serious call-to-arms--showing them how to move from anger and despair to activism as the Trump presidency is in full swing and he signs one executive order after another.
Before we can successfully engage, we need to be clear about the battles ahead. Stone outlines political and social concepts--including such issues as Civil Rights, Women's Rights, the Environment, Obamacare, International relations, and LGBTQ Rights--providing a brief history of each, a refresher on Obama's policies, and an analysis of what Trump's administration might do. Stone then provides an invaluable guide for fighting back--referring to organizations, people, sites, and countless other resources that support positive and possible goals.
While marches and social media are important forms of protest, concrete actions achieve real change. Positive and reinforcing, The Trump Survival Guide presents the essential information we need to effectively make our voices heard and our power felt.
