In Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times Amy and David detail the ways in which grassroots activists have taken politics out of the hands of politicians. This new book tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed. The book not only is a timely, inspiring, and even revolutionary look at who wields the greatest power in America--everyday people who take a chance and stand up for what they believe in--but also offers advice on what you can do to help.
