Don't Think of an Elephant! Know Your Values and Frame the Debate: The Essential Guide for Progressives by George Lakoff


If you’re not well versed in politics, political psychology, or political ideologies, you will probably get quite a bit from this book. Some of it will be flawed and incorrect knowledge though, as there are many aspects of this work I thought flat out wrong, limited, or detrimentally simplified.
What is important to remember is that the writer is a cognitive scientist and not a political scientist, so he’s strong on the former, weaker on the latter.
Also i think the structure of the book is flawed. I would read parts 1 and 2, then the final chapter, and then the part about the issues. It would work better in that order.
