Praise for Going Big:
"A lively mélange of history, politics and progressive playbook."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A cogent reminder of the importance of federal policy, presidential leadership, and the elusiveness of economic justice."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Kuttner makes a convincing case that bold policies are needed to address the country's ills."
--Publishers Weekly

"The latest from one of the most tenacious and principled journalists in American politics has arrived at just the right moment. This should be required reading among Democrats in Washington and across the country. "
--Heather McGhee, New York Time bestselling author of The Sum of Us

"As Joe Biden might put it, Going Big is a BFD--one with an urgent, essential, and ultimately hopeful message. If I could convince the president to read just one book at this perilous moment, this would be it. "
--Jacob S. Hacker, Stanley Resor Professor of Political Science, Yale University, and co-author of Let Them Eat Tweets

"Robert Kuttner is a modern Tom Paine who explains brilliantly the frightening crisis we face and then offers a remarkable, bracing, impassioned prescription for salvation and, indeed, renewal. Spreading the word about Going Big is absolutely imperative. "
--Randall Kennedy, Michael R. Klein Professor, Harvard Law School, and author of New York Times 2021 Notable Book Say It Loud

"Can Joe Biden and the Democrats take a page from Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal to 'go big' and thereby reconstruct America and its politics? Robert Kuttner, the nation's most perceptive critic of the predatory capitalism that so bedevils us, answers with a resounding and insightful YES!"
--Nelson Lichtenstein, Distinguished Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of State of the Union
