From the reviewers:

"Close your eyes and imagine the force of the people and the power of love overcoming the force of greed and the love of power. Then read The Dandelion Insurrection. In a world where despair has deep roots, The Dandelion Insurrection bursts forth with joyful abandon."-- Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink

"I love this book! It beautifully captures the revolution of love that is sweeping the globe, told as an epic novel that will set your heart on fire. A rare gem of a book, a must read, it charts the way forward in this time of turmoil and transformation. If you loved Occupy Love, you will love the Dandelion Insurrection!"-- Velcrow Ripper, Canadian Academy Award (Genie) winner, director of Occupy Love

"This novel will not only make you want to change the world, it will remind you that you can." -- Gayle Brandeis, author of The Book of Dead Birds, winner of the Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction

"THE handbook for the coming revolution!"-- Lo Daniels, Editor of Dandelion Salad

"The Dandelion Insurrection is an updated, more accurate, less fantastical Brave New World or 1984."-- David Swanson, journalist, author, peace activist

"The Dandelion Insurrection is a prayer seven billion hearts strong and counting."-- Megan Hollingsworth, Founder of Extinction Witness

"Rivera Sun's The Dandelion Insurrection takes place in a dystopia just a hop, skip and jump away from today's society. A fundamentally political book with vivid characters and heart stopping action. It's a must and a great read."-- Judy Rebick, activist and author of Occupy This!

". . . a beautifully written book just like the dandelion plant itself, punching holes through the concert of corporate terror, and inviting all to join in the insurrection."-- Keith McHenry, co-founder of the Food Not Bombs Movement

"The Dandelion Insurrection is meant to be more than a story. Its aim is inspirational.

It teaches and it preaches. Its message is nonviolence and love and action: "Its motto... Be kind. Be connected. Be unafraid."...The writing is poetic and filled with imagery....sometimes exuberant, sometimes funny....Inspirational and educational...a thoroughly entertaining, absorbing and intriguing read, that kept me turning pages with great eagerness until the very end of the story."----Casey Dorman, Editor, The Lost Coast Journal

"The Dandelion Insurrection...Get it. Give it. Lift it, hold it, blow its seeds to the winds of your social surroundings and allow the knowledge to ride wherever, to sprout all around us."---- Tom H. Hastings, Ed.D., Director, PeaceVoice Program, Oregon Peace Institute
