Monthly Mtg: How to Communicate As a Liberal

Several of us suggested that, since we're all in the election's stretch run, it would be useful to read something on the art of political communication. So, we'll do these two. Remember, you can just read one if you want. I'm making one an easy read and one a little bit harder (but nothing like last month's Freeom's Power!).

1. The Little Blue Book, by George Lakoff. A pure, "how-to-sell-our-belie3fs handbook. The easy, short one. http://www.amazon.com/Little-Blue-Book-Essential-Democratic/dp/147670001X/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1347850918&sr=1-2&keywords=lakoff+george

2. The Political Brain, by Drew Westin. A great counterpart book, since some people find Lakoff simplistic. http://www.amazon.com/The-Political-Brain-Emotion-Deciding/dp/1586485733/ref=pd_sim_b_3

Both of these are in paperback. Lakoff is <200pp; Westin is great, but almost 500pp. The SD County library has 3 Westin and no Lakoff. So, if you can't find Little Blue Book, go read his 2008 book, Don't Think of an Elephant: http://www.amazon.com/Dont-Think-Elephant-Democrats-Progressives/dp/1931498822/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1347852000&sr=1-5&keywords=lakoff

See you in October (Neil will be back).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
