Product description


"With insight, compassion, and a fundamental understanding of how rankism in all areas of our culture impacts individuals and communities, the reader is called to look at human degradation and discrimination in new ways. But unlike so many books that only articulate a problem, All Rise gives us a way to change our personal relationships, professional practices, and our involvement in our political and economic systems."
--Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabes (the inspiration for the film Mean Girls) and Queen Bee Moms and Kingpin Dads

"Fuller has it right: many are just plain tired of the somebodies stealing their dignity.... [He] provides us a roadmap to a better society, one that's characterized by equal dignity for all."
--Robert Spanogle, National Adjutant, The American Legion

"If only all the problems in the world were just about money, or land, or religion, or racism. But in fact, they're about power. All of these things are just excuses for the ugly tendency of those in power to abuse those without it. Worse, power often seduces the powerless as much as it corrupts the powerful. Fuller exposes these ugly dynamics--and in exposing them, helps to make them easier to overturn."
--Esther Dyson, Internet guru, Editor, Release 1.0

"All Rise gives us the essential tools to fight abuses of rank and to build high-performing institutions and organizations based on respect. It is the operating manual for leaders who recognize the latent power of each individual to make a difference in a free and fair society."
--Wes Boyd, Co-founder,

"This important and useful book, which is not a critique of the concept of rank, but of its abuse, should be read by leaders of ALL failing institutions, particularly those in the public school system. It is a sad commentary on our society that this statement in favor of human dignity should be so necessary at this time."
--A. Lawrence Chickering, Research Fellow, Hoover Institution

"Robert Fuller looks at life through a provocative and unusual lens. Even if you begin by thinking your own worldview is different, you will nonetheless find here an array of observations that leave you intrigued, surprised, and unexpectedly nodding your head in agreement."
--Adam Hochschild, Founder, Mother Jones, and author of Bury the Chains: Prophets and Rebels in the Fight to Free an Empire's Slaves

"No value is more needed in today's world than respect for the dignity of others. In this brilliant treatise, Fuller cogently argues the case for redesigning our social institutions to create a 'dignitarian society.' His wise recommendations deserve to be widely read--and implemented."
--William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes and author The Third Side
