it was amazing
Recommended for: druggies, hipsters and antidrug warriors

This is one of the best, perhaps the best ever, drug books ever written. If you saw the film (which is decent), please read the book. It is as fresh and as good as if it was written yesterday. A splendid antidote to both anti-drug and pro-drug propaganda, Dick was there and lived the life and wrote beautifully about it. I wish there were writers like this alive and writing today in the US.
