Sharon Harris was president of the Advocates from May of 1995 until May of 2015. She continues to write about and teach excellence in libertarian communication. She is co-author of the Amazon #1 best-selling book, How to Be a Super Communicator for Liberty, about which Ron Paul said: “I recommend this book to everyone serious about winning the battle for liberty. These essays will help libertarians improve their ability to answer the tough questions, make our philosophy relevant to people’s everyday concerns, and most importantly win converts and grow our movement.” You can purchase the print version from the Advocates or the ebook version from Amazon.
