Author and revolutionary Ryan Shattuck knows all about the tribulations standing in the way of revolutions the globe over. That, in short, is what propelled him to create Revolutions for Fun and Profit: The Proletariat’s Guide to Political Uprising, Citizen Revolutions and Personal Hygiene.

Written in three concise sections—including, “A History of Revolutions: Cowardice, Conmen and Complacency,” “Embrace the Hate: Learning to Love the Inner Revolutionary” and “The Brass Tacks of a Revolution: Because Somebody Broke the Stapler”—Shattuck helpfully dispels all the random myths keeping you from believing yourself a hardcore revolutionary. In turn, he creates a whole new set of myths that will quickly have you on your way to penning compelling manifestos and recruiting the necessary sheep to follow your uplifted staff—e.g., “Although historical revolutions have had their day in the sun, a shinier, newer model is always preferred … No one wants to flip a light switch when The Clapper is kind of a good substitute.”
