The book proposes that court action should only be used as a last result and offers alternatives. It encourages the citizen to know the truth about various systems in our government and society and offers the reader information that can be used by the action oriented citizen to improve quality of life. Ross urges citizens to fight and become public interest advocates to seek change. Ralph Nader writes the introduction and explains that institutions of government and business are too large and distinct and that with a little help and interest from citizen-activists, government and businesses can be made ot respond to the needs and safety of the public.
