    Ping Fu knows what it’s like to be a child soldier, a factory worker, and a political prisoner. To be beaten and raped for the crime of being born into a well-educated family. To be deported with barely enough money for a plane ticket to a bewildering new land. To start all over, without family or friends, as a maid, waitress, and student. Ping Fu also knows what it’s like to be a pioneering software programmer, an innovator, a CEO, and Inc. magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Year.

    Roy B. Paschal says: "A true account as good as any Horatio Alger story!"
    "Engrossing, illuminating, and beautiful."

    Any additional comments?

    This is nonfiction that reads like fiction - a storyline in winding, powerful currents, myriad, elegantly constructed settings, and a host of characters displaying the best and worst of their humanities. At the same time it is an informative and inspiring record of Maoist China, dot-com America, immigrant life, technology, business, and perhaps most of all, what a life can be made to be.

    In an era of ballooning corporate campaign expenditures, unleashed by the Supreme Court in Citizens United, trust in our government is at an all time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys results in Congress - and that our Republic has been lost.Using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left, Republic, Lost not only makes clear how the economy of influence defeats the will of the people, but offers cogent strategies to correct our course....

    kevmoo says: "A profoundly important book. A must read."
    "The most important book I've read in years."

    What did you love best about Republic, Lost?

    Lessig craftily and compellingly uncovers what is the true problem of our time as Americans, and offers up what may be done to save the nation. I've passed this book on to all my friends... you will want to as well. This is a book for all Americans - young and old, conservative, liberal, socialist, or libertarian, city dwellers, country folk, tea partier or occupier - if you are a person who is dissatisfied and looking for progress in America, this is the book for you. If you are not dissatisfied, then this book is really, really, extra super so much the book for you.

    For those interested, Lessig does a great introduction to this book on YouTube as part of Google's lecture series.
