Summary Hightower and DeMarco share stories of people who have followed serious words of wisdom and have been successful in life because of it, in spite of what the elites wanted them to believe couldn't be done. The authors refer to this trend as maverick potential. The featured people come from all walks of life, such as politics, health care, farming, and religion. Hightower and DeMarco tell readers how they too can tap into their own maverick potential and enjoy a successful life.
