    [synopsis] => "An impassioned call to all Americans to fight for equal representation." - Kirkus Reviews
	“This bracing report on the state of American politics offers valuable insights for the 2020 elections.” - Publishers Weekly
	"A thoughtful, illuminating, nonpartisan, and pragmatic analysis of the changes needed to restore power to the public… In this bold and compelling book, Lessig both scrutinizes the laws and forces that led us to this point and guides us towards visionary changes that can reset and restore our faith in our democracy. Given the complexities of the tasks at hand, this a must-read and a much-needed wake up call." - Booklist
	"Lessig tells it with skill, citing a plethora of studies and historical examples to make a persuasive case about the unrepresentativeness of America's political institutions."  - New York Time Book Review
	"Lessig paints a searing portrait of a defective political system that is nonetheless full of hope, community spirit, self-empowered individuals, and ways to fix what is broken." - Foreign Affairs 
	"Lessig is right that a representative American democracy, desirable in itself, would also solve most of the problems that now seem insoluble. It is hard to imagine a more thoughtful and appealing companion in the hard work to move our system to where it ought to be: in our own hands." - Timothy Snyder, bestselling author of On Tyranny and The Road to Unfreedom
	"Lessig, a leading proponent of campaign finance reform, now aims at something even bigger: fixing our broken system of representative democracy. This book is brimming with promising and provocative proposals to fix campaign finance, gerrymandering, the electoral college, the filibuster, and the mind-numbing effects of cable news and social media. It is a bold and bracing repair manual for government of, by, and for the people." - Michael J. Sandel, bestselling author of What Money Can't Buy
	"Lessig is a modern-day Paul Revere with a warning we must heed: Our representative democracy no longer represents us. The change we need is deep and serious. And it can't be fixed with by one election, party, or politician. This urgent book offers not only a clear-eyed explanation of the forces that broke our politics, but a thoughtful and, yes, patriotic vision of how we create a government that's truly by and for the people. We ignore his alarm at our own peril." - David Daley, bestselling author of Ratf**ked and Unrigged
	"Everything Lessig writes should be carefully read. Read it, consider it, and most important, act on it. Our democracy is at stake." - Nancy MacLean, bestselling author of Democracy in Chains
	"The American experiment in representative government is on life support. In his brilliant book, Lessig provides the medical record and a recommended course of care to save the patient.  Every American should read it ... stat!" - Roger McNamee bestselling author of Zucked
	"Full of original, provocative insights and surprising stories, this book is for all who seek to create effective democracy in America." - Frances Moore Lappé, bestselling author of Diet for a Small Planet and coauthor with Adam Eichen of Daring Democracy
	"Lessig proposes the making of a nonpartisan politics to breathe life into the corpse of America's dysfunctional democracy. He does so with fierce and plainspoken clarity. A challenging work of the political imagination, unsweetened with pious cant." - Lewis H. Lapham, editor and founder of Lapham's Quarterly
	"Lessig is the thinking man's popular reformer and this book is a powerful, patriotic and above all useful guide to the fixes for American representative democracy. Agree or disagree, it every citizen should read this book." - Tim Wu, bestselling author of The Curse of Bigness
	"Lessig has long been the leading voice on how corruption undermines American democracy. In this book, he trains his
