Krebs weaves a narrative of culture, family, history, and experience that speeds along without getting bogged down in some sort of dry checklist.

There are lots of ways to be a liberal and this book reminded me of that and made me feel better about some of things I already do, as well as provide a lot of great tips about things I could be doing to help leave a positive mark on the world.

(which will be hard because, in the interest of full disclosure, I'm in the book)

538 Ways may sound like a catalog of rules that nobody could live up to, when it is anything but. Krebs weaves a narrative of culture, family, history, and experience that speeds along without getting bogged down in some sort of dry checklist. This is no prescriptive manual for living as a liberal. It is a helpful dialog of the many ways that liberal ideology can be seamlessly woven into our lives in ways that feel effortless.

Just like the concept behind Drinking Liberally, Justin's approach is relaxed, easy-going, and non-confrontational. There is not a single "Thou Shalt" to be found. For example, many of us work in companies that frown upon partisan political activity. No problem -- you can instead focus your liberal activism in a GOTV direction. If your family is not ready for a full vegan lifestyle, there's plenty of other ways to demonstrate your liberal ideology in the way you shop, share, and grow food. A wide range of approaches and ideas is presented for each aspect of our daily routines.

If you consider yourself to be a liberal, an independent-minded moderate, or even a socially and environmentally aware conservative, you will find plenty of ideas in this book to gently align your life with your principles.

[And if you don't have time to read the whole book right away, I recommend skipping to Ways #298 and #502- 509.]
We all need this guide and we can all be inspired, whether we're liberal, moderate, moderately conservative, or even "libertarian," as long as we have humanity (or are willing to admit it)!
I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when I received this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of useful and informative tips that remain prescient today. It also rejuvenated me in being a liberal, because I get so tired of working on elections and seeing good liberals lose. There are lots of ways to be a liberal and this book reminded me of that and made me feel better about some of things I already do, as well as provide a lot of great tips about things I could be doing to help leave a positive mark on the world.

It's a worthwhile and easy read!
Justin removes the "Liberal guilt" that many of us feel for not being green enough. Instead, he gives us easy, everyday ideas that can make a difference in how we live. His humor and laid-back style give you the impression that he's there with you, confessing his own battle with "Living Liberally" and how small steps changed his life. My Libertarian, climate change denying boss has even adopted some of the ideas in this book. Not because he wants to save the environment, but because he wants to save money!
While I didn't agree with every one of them, I found this to be a good collection of suggestions on how to consciously make liberal choices in how you live your life. What it all boils down to is choosing things that benefit everyone, not just yourself.
Justins book is a great read and provides many useful tips and ideas for all americans. You dont have to be a liberal to benefit from his many well thought out concepts. Open minded people of any political stripe can grow positively as individuals by putting Justins ideas to work.The message from justin ,''we are better off when we live for each other than when we live only for ourselves''
Liberals complain about the 10 Commandments.

And here are 538 new rules.

I'm impressed!
