Stephan Kinsella is a patent attorney and libertarian writer in Houston, Texas. He is the Founding and Executive Editor of Libertarian Papers, Founder and Director of the Center for the Study of Innovative Freedom (C4SIF), and founding member of the Property and Freedom Society. He was General Counsel for Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. and a partner with Duane Morris LLP. He received an LL.M. in international business law from King's College London, a JD from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at LSU, and BSEE and MSEE degrees from LSU. He has published numerous articles and books on IP law, international law, and the application of libertarian principles to legal topics.
One of the things you learn from this book is how influential Ayn Rand,Ludwig von Mises, and Murray Rothbard were for the rise of modern libertarianism. Another lesson is that libertarians come from all walks of life, all income levels, all sexes. Every intellectual journey included here is unique, but always a reminder of the power of ideas for shaping lives. That's one of the reasons why I find personal histories much more fascinating than fiction. Fortunately, this is a book about the power of good ideas on good people and will inspire even more good people to be hopeful about the future.
