I highly recommend this uplifting compendium of wisdom for achieving social justice, protecting the environment, and renewing our democracy. Worth taking in large doses. -- Jill Stein, Green Party USA candidate for President

Words from hundreds of wise people like Richard Dawkins, Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Allen, and George Orwell, to make you laugh, think--or both." -- Ed Buckner, former president of American Atheists

"William Martin's excellent chronicle of quotations from the American Left needs to be lifted above ground and spread across the land. Read, absorb, and take action!" -- Jim Hightower, nationally syndicated columnist, radio commentator, author, and editor of the Hightower Lowdown

    An AMAZING collection! Quotes from the underground was entertaining, informative, funny, and most importantly inspiring. The collection is beautifully assembled and obvious care was taken with its organization and structure. It can be read 100 pages at a time or in very small doses. Either way, William Martin's book will leave you wanting more.
