For the Love of Long Shots: A Memoir on Democracy by Shawn Casey O'Brien

What would happen if 40 million disabled citizens organized their vote and took power in America?

Shawn Casey O'Brien's literary memoir For The Love Of Long Shots looks at the off-beat, humane possibilities as a rag tag group of disabled rebels lay the groundwork for just such a bloodless,
democratic revolution.

From motivating millions to register and vote, to ending voter suppression and wholeheartedly encouraging the electorate to "lie to the polls" and then simply vote their conscience, For The Love Of Long Shots takes an irreverent, if not realistic, look at what ails American democracy today and how best to save it-one disabled vote at a time.

For the Love of Long Shots is a true story set in LA California's in the 1990's. This book inspires the reader to take charge of their own lives and dream, to make dramatic changes, one person at a time. The characters are fun, the suspense is chilling, and the wins and loses heartfelt. Thank you Shawn O'Brien for all your wisdom and your hard work making this world a better place to live . I rate this book a 5.

O'Brien's book is a delight! In colorful scenes and language, he brings out the pleasure and the pains of practicing democracy on one's own. Quite an adventure and a very sympathetic portrait of the Disable community of which he is a proud member. Can't wait to see what O'Brien comes up with next!
