Evolution of a Revolution by Conallan Power is the story of Andre. The book begins when Andre is a young boy whose mom deserts he and his father and they move in with his grandmother. Power takes you through Andre's life from that point until he is a grown man and has accomplished much. Andre and Mark (his father) truly have a unique relationship which you will grow to admire.
Andre left high school and became a laborer. It did not take very long for Andre to be noticed and brought to the forefront of the labor union executives. Andre married into a labor union execs family and from there he will go on to have 3 families--children from each marriage. Andre is a progressive thinker that quickly realizes the unions he works for really do not have the best interest of the workers in their sights--they are looking out for themselves.
Andre breaks away from the conventional labor union and forms his own. Through the years he endures many successes and many setbacks--but does not waver from his beliefs and strives to make the workplace better for its workers.
Evolution of a Revolution is a thought provoking, interesting book. It would be very easy to sit and read from cover to cover. Easy read, but quite informative.
