After reading this book, one feels an incredible urge to go out there and pursue that one project you've always thought you'd be good at. After all, that's what punk rock is about." -Ground Control Magazine"Like a long car ride with your Uncle Hank." -Willamette Week"A whole smattering of punks from vegan chefs (Joshua Ploeg) to polarizing pundits (Ben Weasel) are given a forum to relate their stories and philosophies. Some may be unfamiliar to you, some may be household names in your home, but there's something to glean from all of them, be it inspirational and/or informational." -Reglar Wiglar"Interviewing an actress, bicyclist, Catholic Worker, chef, chocolatier, Cuban-American fan of Green Day, Fulbright Scholar working for Cambodia, a psychologist specializing in males, and lots of graphic designers, printers, and publishers, Joe Biel reveals the range of those who use the mechanisms of punk's self-motivated and communally based ethos to change our world by action." -Pop Matters "
