In "Join the Club," Rosenberg identifies a brewing social revolution that is changing the way people live, based on harnessing the positive force of peer pressure, and shows how peer pressure has reduced teen smoking in the United States, made villages in India healthier and more prosperous, helped minority students get top grades in college calculus, and even led to the fall of Slobodan Milosevic.

This should be required reading for social workers, policy wonks--anyone interested in how groups behave. MacArthur and Pulitzer Prize winner Rosenberg tells fascinating stories of how peer pressure can serve the common good, as in the successful and teen-created anti-smoking campaign.
