I've read a pile of PKD books during the last twenty years and found this to be interesting. This tied in what was happening in his life and the parallels with the books he was writing. This book would mean alot lot less to me if I hadn't read the books. I became less interested in the end as PKD went really over the deepend during the Ubik/Valis Divine Invasion years.

The book was enjoyable and I felt that Carrere had an understanding and a appreciation of PKD. There are also a number of books which are PKD interviews which are interesting reads(names escapes me).

My favorite PKD book: A Scanner Darkly.
