Don't Think of an Elephant: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate (A Progressive Guide to Action) by George Lakoff
Don't Think of an Elephant: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate (A Progressive Guide to Action)

Wow. I can't say enough about this simple to read book; I have re-read it, and highlighted sections of it. The information packed into the few pages has changed the way I perceive so many things; well beyond politics. The power of words is no news to me; the concept of the vastness of that power--the ability to set the standard for how we reference things--phenomenal. This book has indeed shattered some of my fundamental constructs that I had bought into. I can't wait to read more of his work--but first I need to review this again!

This is one of those VERY few books or news sources where, nearly every conversation I get into, I find myself at least mentally referencing this book. No one has ever been able to explain republican thought processes to me before, in a way that makes sense. No one has been able to explain how they have become so well oiled. This book explains so much to me, and helped so much to understand what goes on in the media and in the political elections. I recommended it several times even before I finished it. I plan to re-read it and highlight this time, which is something I haven't done other than for college courses.
