Why Bother?: Getting a Life in a Locked-Down Landby Sam Smith
This book begins: "Let's turn off the television, step into the sunlight, and count the bodies." Smith starts by detailing the reasons many of us feel overwhelmed, and perhaps paralyzed, by what's going on in our different institutions. He then sucks you in and helps you chew over what's really been bothering you wondering, "what can be done?" He suggests different types of responses to cultural crisis: the Advocate, the Committed, the Seeker, the Free Thinker, and the Rebel. This is one of the few books that can do more than just get you mad it may just get you motivated. Highly readable, and recommended by Ralph (Nader).
