Let My People Go Surfing, Yvon Chouinard

Having read this book around the time I first started Walrus Oil, I was deeply inspired, so much so I purchased a stack of copies and handed one out free to each new hire. This is a must read for any business owner who desires to break the norm to put both the environment and employee culture first. - Dave Darr  

In this newly revised 10th anniversary edition, Yvon Chouinard—legendary climber, businessman, environmentalist, and founder of Patagonia, Inc.—shares the persistence and courage that have gone into being head of one of the most respected and environmentally responsible companies on earth.

From his youth as the son of a French Canadian handyman to the thrilling, ambitious climbing expeditions that inspired his innovative designs for the sport's equipment, Let My People Go Surfing is the story of a man who brought doing good and having grand adventures into the heart of his business life-a book that will deeply affect entrepreneurs and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
