Soft-spoken Adam Verner narrates this audiobook with the steady persistence of its subjects--nonviolent activists. In five chapters, he calmly details the work of noted activists Mahatma Gandhi, suffragist Alice Paul, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., César Chávez, and Václav Havel. The conclusion highlights young climate activist Greta Thunberg and other contemporary movements--for example, Occupy Wall Street and March for Our Lives. A postscript includes other historical movements. A pdf contains notes and a bibliography. Verner's temperate tone reinforces the book's theme of avoiding charged rhetoric and violent activism. Nonviolence, however, is not to be mistaken for nonconfrontation. The takeaway tenets here are to speak your truth and act on your beliefs.
