Book Review: Don't Think of an Elephant!

Title: Don't Think of an Elephant! Know Your Values and Frame the Debate
Author: George Lakoff
Year: 2004
Type: Non-Fiction
Genre: Politics

Review: This book is basically an introduction to progressive liberalism in America. In addition, Lakoff argues that "framing" (using a word to make an idea sound better) should be used to propel progressive ideas. It was worth the read (it only took an hour) though it was often repetitive. I suggest reading his book and then a Glenn Beck book or something of that nature to make it more fun.

Grade: C
