Staff Reviews


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.

Description


National Bestseller

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. 

Praise For…


Anyone dreading Inauguration Day will appreciate The Trump Survival Guide. Stone lays out the key fights ahead - over women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, the environment, health care, and more - and offers actionable solutions to counteract your feelings of powerlessness. This book will help you make a bigger impact.

A comprehensive resource guide for individuals worried that certain rights may be in jeopardy, offering the encouragement to actively fight back with as much knowledge and authority as possible.

The resulting book is crisp and pragmatic.

Though the book includes specific ways to attack every issue—joining your local school board to help with education, reporting hate crimes when you see them to help with civil rights—there are broader, universally applicable ways to fight Trump’s agenda.

The Trump Survival Guide is worth every dime of its price. It is chock full of reference material and addresses not easily found, including website addresses that only a Googlemeister could turn up.

Everything novice activists need to get started, all in one place. The ‘What you can do’ sections, are varied and each worthy of careful perusal. Americans concerned about their country’s fate under a Donald Trump presidency will find that this book is the ideal resource for meaningful civic engagement.
