From the Inside Flap: "Richard Stallman is the prophet of the free software movement. He understood the dangers of software patents years ago. Now that this has become a crucial issue in the world, buy this book and read what he said."

Tim Berners-Lee - inventor of the World Wide Web.

"Richard Stallman is the philosopher king of software. He single-handedly ignited what has become a world-wide movement to create software that is Free, with a capital F. He has toiled for years at a project that many once considered a fool's errand, and now widely see as inevitable'."

Simson L. Garfinkel - computer science author and columnist.

"By his hugely successful efforts to establish the idea of 'free software' Stallman has made a massive contribution to the human condition. His contribution combines elements that have technical, social, political, and economic consequences."

Gerald Jay Sussman - Matsushita Professor of Electrical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"'Free as in free speech, not as in free beer.' RMS is the leading philosopher of software. You may dislike some of his attitudes, but you cannot avoid his ideas. This slim volume will make those ideas readily accessible to those who are confused by the buzzwords of rampant commercialism. This book needs to be widely circulated and widely read."

Peter H. Salus - computer science writer, book reviewer, and UNIX historian.

Richard is the leading force of the free software movement. This book is very important to spread the key concepts of free software world-wide, so everyone can understand it. Free software gives people freedom to use their creativity."

Masayuki Ida - Professor, Graduate School of International Management, Aoyama Gakuin University.
