"For so long we have been told to stick to the rules - at school, in work, politics or at home - and now with the help of How to: Be More Pirate, it's time to feel empowered to boldly rewrite them."
"..a call to action for all ethical practitioners working in the citizen space. A reminder that our contributions will never be measured by how well we complied with rules, or how well intentioned our interventions were, but by our courage and the quality of life of the people we serve."
"What a breath of fresh air! No management lingo, no promises you'll make more profit. Instead, this honest acknowledgement: our organizations are all, in some form, out of touch and destructive. Let's start a joyful mutiny."
