About the Author
George Lakey has led over 1,500 social change workshops on five continents. Mark Leier works in the history department of Simon Fraser University.

"If you want to be a soldier, you can go to West Point. If you want to be a nonviolent change-maker--well, this is an awfully good place to start. George Lakey has been near the center of American resistance for decades, and so he has both remarkable stories and remarkable insights--not to mention some remarkable colleagues who add their perspective to this necessary manual!"
--Bill McKibben, cofounder of 350.org

"I've been working with forms of direct education for many decades, and I found new ideas and inspirations in every chapter. For anyone involved in teaching, training, sharing skills, or leading groups, this book is an invaluable resource!"
--Starhawk, author of The Earth Path, Dreaming the Dark, and Webs of Power

"Lakey doesn't make it sound easy, but he employs a reasoned, seasoned perspective to clearly convey principles of organization that have proved their value to activists worldwide."
--Publishers Weekly

"Hard-won advice for community organizers... Clear, encouraging, and potentially empowering."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a must-read for people who teach adults of any age, no matter what the subject, and care about doing it in ways that yield deep and abiding learning. Wonderfully well-written and rich with psychological and spiritual insights as well as practical strategies, it represents the fruits of a lifetime of transformational teaching and learning by one of the foremost adult educators of our time."
--Parker J. Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach and Let Your Life Speak
