Waterstones Says

Shedding stark light on the threats that capitalism poses to democracy, this perspicacious, angry and vital manifesto from the iconic American senator calls for fundamental political change to create a society where economic rights are recognised as human rights.

It's OK to be angry about capitalism. It's OK to want something better. Bernie Sanders takes on the 1% and speaks blunt truths about a system that is fuelled by uncontrolled greed, and rigged against ordinary people.

Where a handful of oligarchs have never had it so good, with more money than they could spend in a thousand lifetimes, and the vast majority struggle to survive. Where a decent standard of living for all seems like an impossible dream.

How can we accept an economic order that allows three billionaires to control more wealth than the bottom half of our society? How can we accept a political system that allows the super-rich to buy elections and politicians? How can we accept an energy system that rewards the fossil fuel corporations causing the climate crisis? How can we let it happen any longer? We must demand fundamental economic and political change.

This is where the path forward begins.

It's OK To Be Angry About Capitalism presents a vision of what would be possible if the political revolution took place. If we would finally recognize that economic rights are human rights, and work to create a society that provides them. This isn't some utopian fantasy; this is democracy as we should know it. Is it really too much to ask?

MEDIA REVIEWS

An attack on the status quo from every conceivable direction ... galvanising and uplifting ... Precisely because Sanders is such a straightforward thinker and writer, he insists on some facts that the political establishment - on both sides - wilfully ignores. - The Guardian

I can't wait until everybody reads this book... it's like holding a little piece of hope in your hands. - Emma Dabiri

Bernie Sanders opens his latest book with a compelling thought: conventional wisdom says you get more conservative in politics as you grow older, but he finds himself going the opposite direction. The 81-year-old writes exactly how he speaks - with passion and in his signature blunt style ... The book embodies Sanders' politics. - Prudence Wade, The Independent

Sanders lays forth a well-reasoned platform of programs to retool the American economy for greater equity ... the plutocrats might want to take cover. - Kirkus

Our favorite democratic socialist ... Yes, it is okay to be angry about capitalism, and it's even better to do something about it. - Yaseen Al-Sheikh, Jacobin

A noble purpose ... a powerful new book. - Charles Kaiser, The Guardian

Reality keeps endorsing Bernie Sanders. Pass it on. - Naomi Klein

A message of hope and courage - that collective action can rid the world of injustice. - Owen Jones

Gives us a glimpse of what politics could be like. - Yanis Varoufakis

Only Bernie Sanders can break the power of capitalism. - Paul Mason

A decent, honest person. It's pretty unusual in the political system. - Noam Chomsky

Sanders' success today shows that much of America is tired of rising inequality and these so-called political changes and intends to revive both a progressive agenda and the American tradition of egalitarianism. - Thomas Piketty

“An echo chamber”

I agree with everything Bernie Sanders talks about in this book. This made it a an easy read, but also quite boring. It felt like each chapter was a political speech, rather than a well formulated argument and this... More

“passionate, important”

I was already angry about capitalism. I think now I'm more incredulous than anything at how things have managed to get to this point.

Of course, Sanders is speaking in regards to American politics, but nothing... More

“Not me. Us.”

I’ll open this review by stating that I do define my own political leanings as socialist so it’s no surprise why I picked up this book. Nonetheless, the passion that flows through every single sentence of this book is... More
