I have a lot of respect for Yvonne Chouinard. He lived an amazing life and was mindful the entire way. after listening I yearn to climb mountains, to work in such an amazing company as Patagonia, to start an organic farm, and to practice Civil Disobedience. To think about life and put your thoughts to action.

I respect Patagonia and the fact that the company stands behind its values. I was hoping for more on the overall management of the company, not so much on this is what is wrong with the planet and let me give you a ton of statistics to back it up.

Next time you buy anything, ask yourself "who made it," "where was it made" and does this company care about the environment and the labour staff. This is a great book which provides insight into the how a company made mistakes and what actions it took as soon as it realised that their product was toxic.
An insipration on knowing what your purpose is when setting up a business and knowing the role the business plays both in society and in relationship to the planet
This is amazing, insightful, true and is filled with inspiring values we all need to be living by
What made the experience of listening to Let My People Go Surfing the most enjoyable?
This is more than an autobiography of a great climber, surfer and environmentalist. Not just the story of one of the most succesful companies in the world. It is a call to arms. A manifesto to live a better, simpler, happier life. I haven't been moved by a book like this since Naomi Klein's 'No Logo'
What aspect of Yvon Chouinard and Christopher Grove ’s performance might you have changed?
I wish we had Yvon's gravely voice narrate this. The narrator does a good job, but I love hearing YC speak and if he'd narrated the whole book, not just the intro, it would be a masterpiece.
