Burgeoning revolutionaries will find plenty of food for thought in this thorough, well-organized introduction to the world of "cause" and "affect!" Although Clinton makes some use of specifically American examples, her call for change is universal and encourages youth of all ages and backgrounds to make their voice heard.
