Do you find yourself staring helplessly at your news feed? Or all too often asking, 'why hasn't somebody done something about that?'.
If the answer is yes, then DO SOMETHING is the book you need.
Whether you simply want to challenge your local shop to reduce their plastic or go big and demand a new law to be passed, this book is the place to start.
Full of lessons from the real world DO SOMETHING contains practical steps and a blueprint anyone can follow - from helping you to pinpoint the fundamentals of what you want to achieve to mobilising supporters and harnessing traditional and social media.
Having worked as a campaigner for over a decade Kajal Odedra knows the tricks that have typically been used by people in circles of power and believes that everyone should know how to speak up and be heard.
Revolution on every scale is happening all around the world - but rather than being led by governments, policy makers or political leaders, it is individuals, communities and collectives who are calling for action.
People power works! So, stop banging your head against the wall, pick up this book, and start planning your resistance.
