From the Heart

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.

Worst I have listened to on Audible

What would have made Let My People Go Surfing better?

A more in depth history of the company. Book felt like a 10 hour advertisement for Patagonia products.


What could Yvon Chouinard and Naomi Klein have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Book was constant information about global warming. If I wanted to read about global warming I would have purchased a book written by a scientist. Not a Clothing manufacturer that sells clothing made in China


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator sounded like she was reading for infomercial
