Author: Magid Magid
Let's be honest. Magid Magid's story seems an unlikely one. He's a Somali-born black Muslim refugee who became the youngest ever Lord Mayor of Sheffield and one of the last UK MEPs.
Magid has made headlines nationally and internationally for his creative ways of campaigning while not conforming to tradition and being unapologetically himself. Magid had no idea that the poster he dreamed up for a local music festival in 2018 would go viral. The poster contained the 10 commandments he tries to live by.
He had no idea that this poster would come to represent a movement that has swept him to the heart of local and European establishment politics. Now, for the first time, he reveals the stories behind each of these 'commandments'; what drives him, the obstacles he overcame and what makes him hopeful. If you want to make a change, big or small, and don't know where to start, this is the book for you.
If you are fed up with those in power not listening, passively acting out the norm and telling you 'but we've always done it like this', this is the book for you. If you are tired of asking the wrong people to do the right thing and fundamentally believe a better world is not only possible but also probable, this is the book for you.
