Synopsis

Whether we have children or not we all want the future to be fairer and happier; and Zoe Williams believes that we need to make that happen collectively.





GET IT TOGETHER is a rousing call to arms for us all to play our part in creating a more equal society.





Zoe believes that it’s not enough to sit back and watch as our NHS slides away from us; as the young and low earners are forced out of London; as hundreds of thousands of people nationally drift into poverty; as education becomes increasingly divided and as the wealthiest five people in Britain earn more than the poorest 20%.





Zoe will address key questions including: has the NHS had its day; has an immigrant stolen your job; have you ever wondered why you can't afford a house; and who got us into this mess anyway? She will then offer up, in answer, a combination of fact, opinion and debate that will be as inspiring as it is important.





Zoe Williams brings together here all the arguments that occupy the current political landscape and shows us that on all levels, it’s lunacy to be anything other than left-wing unless you’re actually already an oligarch. She offers us the debate in a truly entertaining way - she’s pacey, conversational and funny. This is a road map for a better future that will be a major part of the debate in the run up to the election next May.

Customer Reviews

This well-written and researched book kept me hooked as the author explained why we need to get together to produce the society we want that works for all of us and not just bankers and the richest 1%. Williams, a journalist, writes very accessibly and makes a powerful rallying call to value and save the NHS and our welfare system. Ardent right-wingers won't like this book but for me reading it was the rallying call to get involved in politics.
