A book like no other - one of the most peculiar I have read in a while... A highly intelligent and inspiring read.

-E&T Magazine The book's intellectual rigour is as laudable as its open-mindedness.

-Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Monitor appealingly humble and refreshingly determined to talk about big ideas with the individuals who would be most affected by their implementation.

-New York Review of Books, 2.21.2019 no one else could have written this book, in this form, and it's a delight to be faced so openly with such complexity of perspective in (mostly!) direct prose.
