    Patagonia is an amazing company with great products and a commendable mission I m probablyapt to purchase something from Patagonia than from one of their competitors after reading this book, but I don t subscribe to Chouinard s overwhelming anti establishment sentiment Somebody s got to make enough money to buy their 500 ski jackets, and it isn t the dirtbags living out of their cars, smoking pot and eating cat tuna The environmental

    It was 3 stars until 70% of the book but the ending deserves 4.This book is the story of Patagonia and how its founders deal with business, people, and the environment.Their way of life resonates a lot with what I think is a good way to live Maintain a sustainable business, hire people you trust and give them enough freedom to live a good life while giving their best to make the company grow, thinking about the environment, grow only when you have to grow to supply you
