    Accountability Citizenship explains how we can restore accountability in government by accepting our personal accountability for some simple tasks we must do as individual citizens living in the age of information. The book is non-partisan. Readers are asked only to agree on the very basics-that the government of the United States is supposed to represent the people of the United States.

    The author makes a compelling case that changes in our information distribution technologies and business models discourage effective political participation by citizens. In the early days of our republic, information distribution was based on newspapers-subscription-based and geographically aligned with the representative structure of Congress. Over the past forty years, deregulation of television and radio along with the information technology revolution have disrupted this alignment. But we can restore accountability through the three steps of accountability citizenship: being appropriately positive, appropriately informed and appropriately engaged.

  • Being Politically Involved isn't Hard After All

    I would like every library in America to carry this book. It is non-partisan and positive and full of great tips for effective political participation in our society. In particular, I think Steve Tryon does a great job of giving the reader a sense of empowerment. Just the simple fact that 87 percent of Congress comes up for re-election every two years is something I think many of us learn in school, but then forget. Tryon also goes to great lengths to describe why we should seek to understand the views of those with whom we disagree. The discussion of civil rights and women's rights are particularly powerful examples of why it is important to keep an open mind. There is a passion in this book that I find refreshing, because it seems to spring from the notion that my views are just as valid as the author's views, even if they are different.

  • Accountability Citizenship

    This is a good book with concrete, positive steps we can all take to make our country better. If we all take these steps, or if most of us take these steps, then I think we can make our government more efficient and responsive.

  • Steve is spot on...

    I've personally worked with Stephen Tryon (the author), both as a direct report and in business partnerships. I can confirm that he is a true leader in every sense of the word, and an incredible model citizen. This book shows the passion we should all have in driving accountability and respect for the process to make each other better at every opportunity. Would definitely recommend this book.
