Description


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.

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;
Natasha Elcock, resident of Grenfell Tower and chair of Grenfell United, the pressure group set up by families after the disaster;
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.
