"A weeklong ride in a van drinking too much coffee and just talking about everything, feeling inspired and wishing somebody would write it all down... that's what this book feels like."
- Jason Chandler, author and illustrator for Horrible Comics and lead singer for punk band The Frustraters
"Caroline Moore offers the best kind of hope for anyone who hopes not to spend the rest of her or his life grinding out boredom in an office cubicle. Punk Rock Entrepreneur shows musicians and other artists how to make a living (or part of one) out of creativity without resorting to the loathsome selling-out that kills your soul. It won't be easy. It might not work. But it CAN be done." ‘
- Ted Rall, cartoonist and author of Bernie and Snowden
