This book captures the spirit of those on an adventure in time and space. I highly recommend it. How do you know where you are going without knowing where you've been? It is amazing how history is truly on a loop - sometimes almost an identical loop.
This is the quintessential account of how it all began - the "drugs, sex, rock" scene that plagues us still.
I purchassed this particular volume for another, but I have a copy and have given away several more - and I never fail to recommend it at the least opportunity.
Wolf's style will take some readers a while to get used to, but the effort is worth it.
Wolf makes no judgments, he merely accurately describes; that's plenty enough.
This is a very serious funny book by one of the best writers of our times. For any reader of taste or sense, not being familiar with the works of Tom Wolf is an egregious act of self-denial.
