Kirkus "A persuasive case for retooling how activists think and talk about matters of the wallet." Daily Kos "Shenker-Osorio, who's been fighting in the trenches of the word wars for years as a communications consultant to the ACLU, the MS. Foundation, America's Voice and dozens of other progressive groups, knows her stuff. Don't Buy It is a great handbook to start thinking about how to change the conversation, particularly on the economy." Village Voice
