Naomi Klein - award-winning journalist, bestselling author of No Logo, The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, scourge of brand bullies and corporate liars - gives us the toolkit we need to survive our surreal, shocking age. 

'This is a look at how we arrived at this surreal political moment, how to keep it from getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can flip the script.'

Remember when love was supposed to Trump hate? Remember when the oil companies and bankers seemed to be running scared? What the hell happened? And what can we do about it? Naomi Klein shows us how we got here, and how we can make things better.

No Is Not Enough reveals, among other things, that the disorientation we're feeling is deliberate. That around the world, shock political tactics are being used to generate crisis after crisis, designed to force through policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and our security. That extremism isn't a freak event - it's a toxic cocktail of our times. From how to trash the Trump megabrand to the art of reclaiming the populist argument, Naomi Klein shows all of us how we can break the spell and win the world we need. 

Don't let them get away with it.  'An ordinary person's guide to hope. Read this book' Arundhati Roy 

'As accessible as it is brilliant, No is Not Enough is an essential blueprint for a worldwide counterattack' Owen Jones 

'Who better than Naomi to make sense of this madness, and help us find a way out? A top-of-the-stack must read' Michael Stipe 

'Naomi Klein's new book incites us brilliantly to interweave our No with a programmatic Yes. A manual for emancipation' Yanis Varoufakis 

'Magnificent ...a courageous coruscating counterspell' Junot Diaz

Naomi is like a great doctor - she can diagnose problems nobody else sees -- Alfonso Cuaron An ordinary person's guide to hope. Read this book -- Arundhati Roy As accessible as it is brilliant, No is Not Enough is an essential blueprint for a worldwide counterattack -- Owen Jones Who better than Naomi to make sense of this madness, and help us find a way out? A top-of-the-stack must read -- Michael Stipe Naomi Klein's new book incites us brilliantly to interweave our No with a programmatic Yes. A manual for emancipation -- Yanis Varoufakis Magnificent ... a courageous coruscating counterspell -- Junot Diaz Urgent, timely, and necessary -- Noam Chomsky Naomi Klein constructs a common story that allows us to sustain the effects of being shocked. We can act upon that, with intelligence and happiness, to recover our world -- Gael Garcia Bernal If you're wondering how Naomi Klein has managed to produce an essential and gripping book so early in the Trump presidency, it's because she's spent her whole intellectual life preparing for just this moment. Trump is the ultimate logo. Every day we watch him try to exploit yet another shock to the system. So this is the book to read - not just the first word on Trump, but in powerful ways the last word as well -- Bill McKibben, author of RADIO FREE VERMONT A genuine page-turner - highly engaging and provocative - and provides a fascinating lens through which we can view our current moment. Klein is not preaching to the choir, but framing the moment, connecting necessary dots, and outlining the challenge that lies ahead in clear terms that anyone can understand -- Michelle Alexander, author of THE NEW JIM CROW No Is Not Enough is the accumulation of years of brilliant and layered analysis applied with lightning precision to an understanding of how we got to Trump, and how we can use this moment to bring about another system and world -- Eve Ensler, author of IN THE BODY OF THE WORLD Saying No to their shock doctrine is essential but insufficient. Naomi Klein's new book incites us brilliantly to stiffen our lip, to overcome quickly their calculated shocks, and to interweave our No with a programmatic Yes. It is a manual for emancipation by means of the only weapon we have against orchestrated misanthropy: constructive disobedience -- Yanis Varoufakis, former Finance Minister of Greece Naomi Klein has written a compelling book that we all need to read and act on. No Is Not Enough is an essential handbook for all people, especially young people, who want to understand the economic, social, and political forces that produced the current crisis we are facing - and how we can effectively organize to win a better world -- Danny Glover, actor [O]ne of the most influential left-wing writers in the world -- Rob Hastings * i News * [A] brilliant articulation of restless anxiety. -- Tim Adams * The Observer * Makes a powerful and an important point: that you cannot understand Trump without looking at how he reflects bigger cultural and social dynamics -- Gillian Tett * Financial Times * Brilliant analysis of Trump and how we got here. She's such a great political writer. -- Matt Haig ...brilliant. It is a guide to resistance in the age of Trump, grounded in the idea that simply resisting oppression is insufficient. [...] The book manages to be that rare thing in political writing: both rousing and profoundly sensible. [...] It's a frightening proposition. It is also the only thing that makes sense. The urgency of this period of human history demands no less. -- Laurie Penny * New Statesman *
