I first learned of John Perkins in 1996 when I met him at the
Omega Institute. I was there to do a week long workshop in music and healing with Don Campbell, and happened to attend the evening intro John did. I also lucked out and had lunch with him one day. Someone in Ann
Arbor had done a workshop with him and helped to sponsor his bringing ten South American shaman to the USA in the Fall of 1999.
Within a few weeks of its release , Confessions of an Economic Hit Man landed on The New York Times
Bestseller List, then 19 other bestseller lists including the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post
. The author has been interviewed repeatedly on national radio and television shows, including Amy Goodman's Democracy Now, CSPAN's Book TV, and PBS' Now with David Brancaccio. And now the book is being published in
9 languages around the world. According to John Perkins, "It is accomplishing an important objective in inspiring people to think and talk and to know that we can change the world."
