  • Go Big is enthralling. I had forgotten that such energy and imagination were possible in a book that concerns itself with contemporary problems of politics and public life. Ed Miliband writes with a vigour and lightness of touch that doesn't conceal or deny the seriousness of the problems or the intelligence of his suggestions for solving them. I was left with such an unusual feeling that I didn't at first realise what it was, and then I remembered: optimism. I hope everyone with the slightest interest in the way the world works will read it, and act on the lines he suggests

  • Inspired and inspiring for all those for whom the future of Britain and of the world is important, Miliband calls upon us to rise to our challenges with clarity and conviction but above all with courageous boldness

    CHRISTIANA FIGUERES, lead negotiator of the UN Paris Climate Agreement
  • If you think we can just keep tinkering around the edges, you're the one who lives in la-la land. 'Go big' should be the rallying cry of progressives around the world

    RUTGER BREGMAN, author of Humankind
  • A hopeful and inspirational book for our depressing times. Ed Miliband, a politician made more human, engaging and wry through surviving the bitterness of electoral defeat, provides example after example from around the globe - some more persuasive than others - of how progressive ideas can work in action. Yet put them all together and the result is this: a vision of a better, sunnier world in which we would all love to live. Great fun, a great programme and a great read

    WILL HUTTON, author of The State We’re In
  • Engaging, powerful and funny, Ed Miliband's Go Big is an urgent call for democratic politics to rise up to the critical challenges of the 21st century. Bringing together research, personal experience and political vision, Miliband makes a compelling case for fundamental change. It is time to make the unthinkable thinkable, it is time to go big

    KATRÍN JAKOBSDÓTTIR, Prime Minister of Iceland
  • Tinkering around the edges will not solve the problems facing Britain. As we emerge from the crisis, we must create a bold new settlement, based on economic security, fairness and prosperity. This timely and thought-provoking book will make important reading for everyone interested in shaping that future

    SIR KEIR STARMER, Leader of the Labour Party
  • A post-pandemic world requires policy-makers to stop clinging to ideology, challenge accepted norms and be bold in finding solutions to the big challenges of our time. Go Big advocates just that, questioning the left and right of politics. At times it makes for uncomfortable reading but I believe it is a brave, essential and timely intervention as policy-makers start to redefine new norms after an unprecedented period of instability. It made me think and rethink again and again

    BARONESS SAYEEDA WARSI, former co-Chair of the Conservative Party
  • By looking around the world at the people fixing and transforming communities, Go Big offers real hope for the future, showing us not only that the challenges we face are huge but that the scale of what is possible is even greater

    NINA STIBBE, author of Love, Nina
  • With wit and compassion, Ed Miliband's inspiring call-to-arms gives refreshingly long-term answers to the short-termism and paralysis in our current politics. Informative and exciting, playful but practical, it's a brilliant roadmap towards a necessary national reboot

    JAMES GRAHAM, author of Brexit: The Uncivil War
  • At a time when our problems seem insurmountable and our disagreements intractable, Ed Miliband gives us reasons to be hopeful. This book makes a compelling case we need to hear: if we are willing to think big, politics can be a force for change and a force for good
