520    "The founder of Tofurky reveals how an idealistic hippie 
       living in a treehouse created a global brand -- and sold 
       millions of products without selling out. In this 
       entertaining memoir, Seth Tibbott reveals how he achieved 
       overnight success -- but only after fifteen years of 
       intrepid failure. He tells the triumphant tale of how a 
       self-described hippie with no business training but plenty
       of enterprising goals grew a |2,500 startup into a global 
       brand and ushered in a plant-based foods renaissance along
       the way. Tibbott took home a grand total of |31,000 in his
       first nine years of striving to bring to the people a 
       nearly unknown soy product -- tempeh -- he knew in his gut
       was revolutionarily tasty. He eschewed a buttoned-up 
       lifestyle and resided in tipis, trailers, and a treehouse;
       rented workspace to piano-repairing circus clowns; and 
       even briefly counted the infamous Rajneeshees as clients. 
       Tibbott was never one to chase the money or try to fit in.
       Instead, he built a business that fit him. Thus Tibbott 
       discovered the "secret sauce" ingredients that took his 
       now-international brand from fameless to fame-ish to 
       famous: bootstrapping, building business intuition, and 
       staying true to his belief in eco-friendly practices. In 
       Search of the Wild Tofurky proves that a good idea can 
       change the world and make money, no matter the naysayers 
       or the sometimes-harsh twists and turns of the 
       unconventional path. "Expert advice and inspiration from a
       most unconventional source... An education in the business
       of ethics." -- Eric C Lindstrom, author of The Skeptical 
       Vegan"--|cProvided by Freading.
