Swim Against the Current

Even a Dead Fish Can Go With the Flow

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


America’s most irascible and hilarious curmudgeon turns a kind and benevolent eye toward brave, hardy, and hardworking souls around the country who have found ways to break free from corporate tentacles; redefine success in business, politics, and life in general; and blaze new pathways toward a richer and happier way of life, from the farmers’ cooperative that said “NO!” to Wal-Mart and thrived to the economists who got into the coffee business by accident and turned the entire industry on its ear.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 10, 2008 – This charmingly irascible little book attempts to take on the powers that be and give Americans a new way of running their businesses, finances and lives. Hightower and DeMarco offer a straightforward reading that will intrigue listeners with their ideas and beliefs. Hightower's narration is more upbeat and entertaining than DeMarco's; she drones through her own antiestablishment rant in a monotonous tone that makes one wonder if she truly believes what she's muttering. Hightower sounds less like he is reading and more like he is delivering a colorful speech, littered with his own disarming wit. Not for everyone, but certainly worth a listen for those looking for change. Simultaneous release with the Wiley hardcover (reviewed online).
