What People Are Saying

“…a wonderful and tremendously important book on the ‘ism’ that is far more encompassing than racism, sexism or ageism. ‘Rankism’ must be our prime target from now on in. Viva Fuller!”

Studs Terkel, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Working.

“Somebodies and Nobodies deserves a place among American wisdom classics alongside Eric Hoffer’s The True Believer. Robert Fuller approaches the fundamental problems of rank and human status-seeking from a new perspective, with new insights, and with wonderful originality. This book will promote liberating debate about social norms, organizational structures, and governance.”

Michael Murphy, co-founder of Esalen, author of Golf in the Kingdom and The Future of the Body
