Publisher's Summary

"This is one attempt to uncover how we got to this surreal political moment. It is also an attempt to predict how, under cover of shocks and crises, it could get a lot worse. And it's a plan for how, if we keep our heads, we might just be able to flip the script and arrive at a radically better future." (From the introduction)

Donald Trump's ascent to the White House is a dangerous escalation in a world of cascading crises. His reckless agenda - including a corporate takeover of government, aggressive scapegoating and warmongering, and sweeping aside climate science to set off a fossil fuel frenzy - will generate waves of disasters and shocks to the economy, national security, and the environment.

Acclaimed journalist, activist, and best-selling author Naomi Klein has spent two decades studying political shocks, climate change, and "brand bullies". From this unique perspective, she argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst, most dangerous trends of the past half century - the very conditions that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism the world over. It is not enough, she tells us, to merely resist, to say no. Our historical moment demands more: a credible and inspiring yes, a road map to reclaiming the populist ground from those who would divide us - one that sets a bold course for winning the fair and caring world we want and need.

This timely, urgent book from one of our most influential thinkers offers a bracing positive shock of its own, helping us understand just how we got here and how we can collectively come together and heal.

What the critics say

"Naomi Klein is magnificent, and in No Is Not Enough, she has forged a courageous coruscating counter-spell against the hegemonic nightmare that, if left unchecked, will devour us all." (Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)
"Naomi Klein is one of the few revolutionary public intellectuals of great integrity and vision. This new book confirms her crucial relevance and essential pertinence." (Cornel West, author of Race Matters)

Avoid audio version if possible

Mrs Klein is a brilliant observer of our times. I thought it very unfortunate that the narrator's performance would be so monotone. Made for a boring read, I'm afraid.

Refreshing

Book: refreshing to see the rare combination of broad fresh ideals combined with practical calculation

performance: the reader lacks the energising zest that this type of matetial demands

NOT JUST WORDS-KLEIN OFFERS A PLAN

Written by one of my favorite authors and very well read by Brit Marling. I like the tone of the narrator and found this book very enlightening and empowering. This book explains the HOW of the current state of the American government and offers a plan of how things can actually be different. Get involved and look into the LEAP Manifesto.

a Refreshing Counterpoint to Futility.

There's no surprise that Naomi Klein is an incredibly well researched and well spoken modern writer. With that this book answered alot of questions I was having about the current state of the American political landscape, namely "what can I do? and, Is there hope for real Progress?" the resounding answer of "yes, but it wont be easy" had the first real potent sense of potent optimism I'd heard in the months post Trump's election. Spelling it out in terms of what's going on and what matters going forward. its ability to fill me with equal parts dread and hope makes "No is not Enough" a truely motivating novel that will stick with me for years I'm sure. Though I would recommend that everyone read this book, I would especially urge that you pick it up if you don't feel politically inspired or feel as though your crippled by Shock politics. echoed throughout the pages you'll find the counterpoint to the futility of modern politics and it's infinitely refreshing.
