Les Leopold discusses and signs his new book, The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor: The Life and Times of Tony Mazzocchi, at Red Hill Books on January 14th at 7:00 pm. In The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor, author and labor expert Les Leopold recounts the life of the late Oil, Chemical, and Atomic Workers Union leader Tony Mazzocchi. Mazzocchi's struggle to address the unconscionable toxic exposure of tens of thousands of workers led to the passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act and included work alongside nuclear whistleblower Karen Silkwood. His noble, high-profile efforts forever changed working conditions in American industryand made him enemy number one to a powerful few. This profound biography should be required reading for those who believe in taking risks and making the world a better place. While Mazzocchis story is so full of peril and deception that it seems almost a work of fiction, Leopold proves that the most provocative and lasting stories in life are those of real people. Don't miss this rare chance to see Les Leopold in the Bay Area!
