"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.
"Half and half not"
The first half of this book was insightful, however the second half was too specific to clothing manufacturing or restatements of previous points.
Patagonia and Yvon Chouinard's stories are amazing. Unfortunately the narrator was a bit grating due to some small mispronunciation errors
"everyone should read this"
This book hit me hard. It made me rethink my whole life. Narrator also great.
