We love to root for the underdog, and that's part of why we're drawn to the stories of revolutionaries. Whether they fail, succeed, or succeed only to become what they once fought against, people who can rally others to their cause and shake up the status quo tend to be inherently interesting. Rockin' the Boat tells the stories of 50 such legends throughout the world, from people fed up with the Roman Empire and the revolutionaries who helped create America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
PRAISE
"A gallery of historical troublemakers starting with Hannibal and ending with Martin Luther King, Jr. ...Snarky picture captions ('Emma Goldman is not interested in your nonsense') and sidebar references to pop culture further enlighten the overall tone. ...Salutary portraits in radicalism." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
"A lively narrative, an accessible length, and deadpan humor--particularly in captions (George Washington is 'tight in tights' and Sitting Bull 'sits bullishly')--allow for irreverent, edifying reading." -- "Publishers Weekly"
