I ran across this book when looking for information about Underground: My Life with SDS and the Weathermen. Knowing that one of my neighbors had been a member of this group in the 1960's, I was curious to peak into his earlier life.

The books starts off interesting but deteriorates. I thought the notes for the next time part consisted of useless (to me) big picture abstractions rather than any real world helpful hints. The Mark Rudd book mentioned above has more helpful real world discussion.

I didn't find out much more about my neighbor's youth. I recognized one anecdote I'd heard him tell, but Neumann used pseudonyms for most of the characters so unless you already know who is who, you can't tell. That is probably for the best as they mostly come off as real jerks.
