The book demystifies organizational culture and provides very practical advice of how to "evolve" your culture and take advantage of the "emotional forces" of your culture. The mixture of storytelling and practical 'how to' advice in The Critical Few kept me engaged and made the concepts memorable, while also clearly conveying what I can do to evolve the culture of my team over time. Kudos to the authors for writing a business book that ISN'T boring and IS useful. I am excited to apply what I've learned.

I bought this book for a citizenship class my son was going to take. If the government-by-the-Bible suits you, then you will like it. I happen to believe there should be a huge divide between church and state, so I was disappointed. At least I was able to sell my copy to someone whose child is in the class.

This book was required reading for my kids as homework for TeenPact Leadership Training. Wow!! It has become a staple re-read in our family. It gives easy, practical ways to become involved in perpetuating change in our community. It also gives insight into the personal responsibility we all have as citizens. My children felt compelled to get involved after reading this book. We love it!!

this was a gift
Today, many citizens of the United States do not view their civic responsibility with importance. This fact is certainly evidenced in the low turnout numbers of voters on Election Day. Voting is a major way that people can have a hand in determining what our culture deems as acceptable, so these statistics should concern us. Even within the ranks of those who do vote, there are some of which it may be said that casting their ballot is the extent of their political involvement. Yet, Tim G. Echols passionately disagrees with the belief that the average American has no effective way, besides voting, to influence the government. His book, Real Citizenship: Practical Steps for Making an Impact on Your Culture is just as invigorating as its title as well as thought provoking. Its rather unusual goal is to involve young citizens in the government process.

Mr. Echols has founded Family Resource Network and TeenPact, a ministry that seeks to inform and excite students about government and how they can be involved. In fact, Real Citizenship illustrates the core mission and values of TeenPact.

Through stories from his and his colleagues' experiences, Mr. Echols presents the young reader with an exhortation to serve God, grow in His wisdom, and to be prepared to be used by Him for great things. As essential as they are to life, spiritual matters are central to this book's many topics and challenges. All other views held by the author stem from this theme. Within the pages of Real Citizenship, the power of one person with convictions is demonstrated and the need for Godly leaders for our country is emphasized.

The topic that impressed me the most was the fact that so much influence can be obtained when you reach out to those in power. Since reading this book for the first time I have found this to be very true through communicating with my legislative delegation. After initial efforts to contact them, I have been remembered as someone who cares and who sees the lawmaking process as important. Overall, God has used this book to help me see the impact that I can make on my society even when I am too young to vote or run for office.

Penetrating and clear in the way that things are explained, Real Citizenship was a provocative read and an excellent introduction to civics for "junior statesmen."
