Paddle Against the Flow: Lessons on Life from Doers, Creators, and Cultural Rebels 
by HUCK Magazine (Author), Douglas Coupland (Foreword) 
Hardcover – 1 February 2015

‘WHAT WE HAVE IN THIS BOOK IS A GREAT BIG PILE OF ADVICE AND INSPIRATION… This advice comes from artists, and the thing about artists is that from an early age they knew they were different, and they knew they were never going to make it in the real world, and they knew they had to somehow create their own reality.’ — from the foreword by Douglas Coupland
HUCK is a magazine that celebrates and explores DIY culture — people and movements that paddle against the flow. Since 2006, HUCK has been tracking down extraordinary ‘doers’ and asking what they’ve learned on their journeys. 
This book collects 60 of the best pieces of wisdom from the people that HUCK has spoken to over the years, alongside photography and art that has come to embody HUCK’s distinct design and aesthetic. 
No matter what stage you’re at in life, these pages are full of truths meant to spark you to create something new — with features advice from: Dave Egger, Beck, Nas, Mark Gonzales, and Mos Def- to name but a few
About the Author

Inspired by DIY principles and rooted in the rebellious heritage of surf and skate, HUCK roams the globe to document grassroots counterculture as it unfolds, seeking out free-thinkers who are a wellspring of new thoughts and ideas.
