Be More Pirate
Or How to Take on the World and Win
Sam Conniff Allende, Sam Conniff Allende
Pirates didn’t just break the rules, they rewrote them. They didn’t just reject society, they reinvented it. Pirates didn’t just challenge the status-quo, they changed everyf*ckingthing. Pirates faced a self-interested establishment, a broken system, industrial scale disruption, and an uncertain future. Sound familiar?
“I’d rather be a pirate than join the navy.”—Steve Jobs
Pirates stood for MISCHIEF, PURPOSE, and POWER. And you can too.
Be More Pirate unveils the innovative strategies of Golden Age pirates, drawing parallels between the tactics and teachings of legends like Henry Morgan and Blackbeard with modern rebels, like Elon Musk, Malala, and Banksy.

1. Rebel — Draw strength by standing up to the status quo.
2. Rewrite — Bend, break, but most importantly, rewrite the rules.
