"An enthusiastic, entertaining libertarian critique of American politics, brimming with derision for the status quo and optimism for the future and confident of the right direction.”
Washington Examiner, June 26, 2011
An important book and lively read.”

A fun and ultimately positive look at how anti-authoritarianism, entrepreneurship and independence have led to one revolution after another in the way we think about the world, the products we buy, and the jobs we end up getting (or creating for ourselves) . It’s a good book, a well-written, easily accessible manifesto on how libertarian ideas and anti-authoritarianism can help change the world, and how they will one way or another, whether we like it or not. Just as importantly, the book is uplifting, optimistic and full of energy.”

Barron’s, July 2, 2011
The authors create an inspiring vision for how we might move beyond the shackles of government control in many areas of our lives a rollicking tale.”
I especially liked the case studies and historical examples of libertarianism in action.

The good- -Enjoyable read for a political book, the interspersion of pop culture history makes it extremely interesting.
