Summary

This is a very powerful audiobook.  

It offers inspiration to those of us who want to speak out at a time when many of us feel the world isn't listening.  

Jess Phillips - no stranger to speaking truth to power herself - will help you dig deep and get organised, finding the courage and the tools you need to speak up and make a difference. As well as offering inspiration and hope from her own experiences Jess talks to the accidental heroes who have been brave enough to risk everything, become whistle-blowers and successfully fight back.    

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

interesting, inspiring but a bit short.

There is something very engaging by the unpretentious style and vernacular used by Jess Phillips and there is a passion for fighting injustice that runs through the book. But somehow it lacked a little depth and practical application and I was left wanting more of a positive vision for the future and some direction.....

Inspirational

Jess has taught me that my passion for challenging the status quo where it is in error is not enough. She offers practical advice that turns passion into possibility and makes us realise that whilst speaking truth to power can be exhausting, frustrating and just downright discouraging, there are things we can do to help us keep going and maybe, just maybe, we can make a difference. So don't say there's nothing we can do as individuals, listen to or read this book and realise that there is. Thanks Jess, you're a star.
