Waterstones Says

One of Westminster’s most outspoken MPs, Jess Phillips has forged a formidable reputation as a people’s champion and defender of the underdog. In this powerful, pragmatic guide she discloses her techniques for calling out bullies, cheats and liars, imparting her own brand of straight talking wisdom into the bargain.

You have more power than you think.

At a time when many of us feel the world isn't listening, Jess Phillips offers inspiration to those of us who want to speak out and make a difference.

No stranger to speaking truth to power herself, she will help you dig deep and get organised, finding the courage and the tools you need to take action.

As well as bringing us hope through her own experiences Jess talks to the accidental heroes who have been brave enough to risk everything, become whistle-blowers and successfully fight back.

Including: Zelda Perkins, the personal assistant who first called-out Harvey Weinstein; Paul Caruana Galizia, son of murdered Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia; Tom Watson the British MP who successfully took on the Murdoch press empire and won; Sara Rowbotham, the sexual-health worker who uncovered the abuse of young girls by gangs of Asian men in Rochdale - and the subsequent cover-up by the authorities; Natasha Elcock, resident of Grenfell Tower and chair of Grenfell United, the pressure group set up by families after the disaster and Cara Sanquest from the campaign to legalise women's right to choose abortion in Ireland.

Entertaining, empowering and uncompromising, Truth to Power is the book we all need to help us call time on the seemingly unstoppable tide of bullshit in our lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Will ruffle some feathers.' - Stylist

'There's nobody else at Westminster quite like Jess Phillips. She is fearless and funny, riotous and rebellious, maverick and mischievous.' - The Times

'Jess Phillips is a heroine' - J.K. Rowling

'Truth to Power treats politics as what we need to remember it is: the solving of problems in people's lives, which one attempts by coming up with a plan and working with everyone. The purpose of the book is to show readers how they can change things too. I've been at events where she's been the surprise guest, and the audience jumped to their feet and whooped like Chrissie Hynde had come on stage to play Brass in Pocket, because someone like Jess Phillips in politics does a powerful thing. It makes millions of women like her think, "If she can do politics, maybe I could do politics too."' - Caitlin Moran

“Another good Jess Phillips read!”

I doubt any MP does and writes “normal” more effectively than Jess Phillips does?! As with ‘Everywoman’, her follow-up book combines serious messages with the seemingly rare capacity she has to cut through... More
