Don't look around, but the corporate and political powers that be don't want you to download this book. It definitely is NOT on their approved list.

Swim against the Current is one of those books that the power elites don't like seeing in stores, much less in your ears - not merely because it challenges their established order, but especially because it reveals paths that folks like you can use to escape rigid, hierarchical structures and discover a bit more satisfaction in life. They prefer that you pick up one of those escapist novels rather than finding out that the greatest escape of all can be from stultifying conventional wisdom.

We Americans are constantly harassed into thinking that we can't break the mold that those in charge have made for us. But as a friend of ours puts it: Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

It's the uplifting stories of mavericks that we tell here. They've broken free of the corporate tentacles, free of business-as-usual politics, free of top-down elites. They're figuring out new ways to do commerce, ways to create political channels that empower grassroots Americans, and ways to live their lives.

As these folks show, resistance is not futile...it's fertile. Join the fun! Happy listening! Download and start listening now!

    " If your idea of optimism is to die of natural causes before the planet goes to hell in a hand basket, it's nice to be reminded over and over of the many good things people are doing out in the world to make this a better place. This book was a pick-me-up to read during lunch. "
