Publisher's Summary

Performed by Propaganda and featuring four exclusive original songs.

In this debut collection of essays and poetry, musician, speaker, and activist Propaganda inspires us to create a better, more equitable world.

“If we get to make the very cultures that shape who we are, then let us remake them in the best way possible.”

In this deep, challenging, and thoughtful book, Propaganda looks at the ways in which our world is broken. Using the metaphor of terraforming - creating a livable world out of an inhospitable one - he shows how we can begin to reshape our homes, friendships, communities, and politics.

In this transformative time - when we are redefining what a truly just and equitable world looks like and reflecting on the work that needs to be done both in our spiritual and secular lives - Propaganda rallies listeners to create that just world. He sheds light on how nefarious origin stories have skewed our views of ourselves and others and allowed gross injustices, and he demonstrates how great storytelling and excellent art can create and shape new perspectives of the world and make all of us better.

Includes the songs " IAGBTW (It Ain't Gotta Be This Way)”, " The Soils Alive", " Us We", and "Imagine" (featuring Nahoa Life) by Propaganda.

My favorite audio book!

This is a piece of art that has sparked my imagination for terraforming my surroundings. Family, work, church, community. I find myself asking to how to be more creative with how I live this one and only life I have to live.

I loved listening to Terraform from Prop’s own voice and inflection. The poems are spoken in the way they are intended (vs reading the words and being left to imagine how he intended them to sound). He’s a natural orator and seamlessly flows from chapter text to poetry to illustrations. I’ll definitely be returning to this audio book again.

Thanks, Prop!

Too young

The writer is just too young when he’s trying to sound wise. But he’s trying. And trying loudly. Which can be unpleasant for ears, but some might like his over emphasized diction.

Mind blown

To say this book is Amazing is an immense understatement. Requires at least 15 words to review it. I don't need fifteen words. stop reading comments and read this book right now. If your driving pull over. if your working go on break. If its dinnertime tell your family your fasting and read this book !

Encouraging!

It's great to hear Prop narrate his own story and poems the way he intended. The description and approach to being a real earthling draws from the various spheres of influence the author operates in. This book has both challenged and encouraged me to think about my own cultural landscape, and what it would mean to terraform.
