THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER.
At a time when many of us feel the world isn't listening, Jess Phillips offers inspiration to those of us who want to speak out and make a difference. No stranger to speaking truth to power herself, she will help you dig deep and get organised, finding the courage and the tools you need to take action. As well as bringing us hope through her own experiences Jess talks to the accidental heroes who have been brave enough to risk everything, become whistle-blowers and successfully fight back.
