I came across a new book today at Borders Bookstore that I think will appeal to many members of the YBBS collective. Its title: "Don't Think Of An Elephant: Know Your Values And Frame The Debate -- The Essential Guide For Progressives" by George Lakoff. Briefly, he shows why the democrats failed in the 2004 election, why conservatives don't hear the facts in news, and how to buck the trend, bringing cognitive science into the mix. The good thing about this book: it's only about 120 pages long, I read half of it tonight in Borders. More information about this book can be found on amazon.com at this link:


For those of you non-readers, there's also a DVD that expresses the same sentiments. It's called "How The Democrats And Progressives Can Win".... it's found on Amazon as well.
