    Wellstone Action uses this as their text book for Camp Wellstone, one of their training weekends. Field strategy, campaign communications, volunteer management and fundraising are covered in an easy-to-digest way related to the late Senator Paul Wellstone's experiences. It only costs $20 so that it is accessible to anyone.

    For political wonks only. If you are one of us this is THE bible for grass roots campaign operations. Paul Welsone was a passionate man with vision who died too soon.

    Almost 15 years after it was published it is now a little dated, but it is still an excellent resource. I elected a handful of State Senators using the techniques described in this book.
