Billed as a 'A Field Guide for Feminist Activism' this sounded like a rather timely and interesting read. It showed up in some article or post about books to read about activism and luckily my library readily had a copy. However, I'm pretty sure there much be better guides out there.
As other reviews note, there are interesting bits and pieces and might make a great "starter" manual if one is completely unfamiliar with organizing. But it's not without it's problems. Just about every chapter has stories from the two authors about their own personal experiences. Sorry, I don't know who these two authors are and really don't care about their experiences. I fit had been limited to just an introduction or preface that outlined how they were going to explain the next chapters then that might have worked. Otherwise it was information that wasn't really interesting or relevant to me.
And as other reviews note, a lot of the suggestions really require resources that one may not have. It's difficult to survive if you've taken an unpaid internship and have rent to pay (plus food you need to eat, gas/insurance for a car, etc.). It can be hard to know what connections to leverage (or even make those connections in the first place!) to get the resources/face time/etc. to speak with major influencers and networkers. Or how to handle things when you don't necessarily agree with a mission/person/group, etc. but how to listen to their concerns/needs, etc.
It might not be a bad primer for some, but after reading other reviews it confirmed to me that while this might not be a bad starting place but it should not be the only resource one has. It's also been more than 10 years since it was published and could really use an updated version.
Library or cheap bargain buy but if there are other resources out there (such as the internet) then this would absolutely not be my first recommendation.
