About 60% of the way , and I am conatntly finding things to highlight (which I do in the Kindle) and to share (which I have on my Kindle Share account, which I also tweet and post to Facebook. Very well written, good background on the participants andf "leaders" (though many resist either identifying or claiming leadership to protect against falling into conventional notions of organizations and/or politics.

I've also been opening Google Hangouts over the past couple weeks, as I read further. Thus far, noone has had comments in the Hangouts. Will write more as I read further and come to the end of the book.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062200925, Paperback)

Occupy Wall Street is the most dynamic phenomenon in progressive politics in more than forty years. Its followers across the country transformed the national debate, galvanizing millions with its clarion call for economic justice: "We are the 99 percent." In Occupy Nation, bestselling social historian Todd Gitlin offers the first narrative survey of the movement—from its historic inspirations, to its inner tensions, to its prospects in the months and years to come. He offers a fascinating account of this remarkable phenomenon while casting an informed look at its continuing evolution—and how it needs to proceed to truly make an impact. Informed by Gitlin's own history in the 60s protest movement—but written with both eyes aimed at the future—Occupy Nation is the key book for anyone looking to understand the revolution playing out before our eyes.

Provides a better understanding of the Occupy Wall Street movement by exploring its origins, spirit, uniqueness, predecessors, and inner tensions, while discussing the role it's likely to play in future political culture.
