Full of insight and fun, this is a book that young people will love (and parents will learn from too!). -- Matthew Syed This book is a fantastic explainer as to why the world works the way it does, and how to get involved and make a change for the better. It's essential for those of us fortunate enough to be making decisions on policy to listen to young people and to act with them in mind - after all, the decisions we make now are the ones they will inherit. Rich's book is a great primer for young people to get involved and influence the world around them. -- Simon Fell MP, co-chair of the UK's All Party Working Group for Political Literacy
