Recommended for: Everyone
Read in April, 1992

A very influential book on me in my younger years. Still makes me laugh now, though. A good book to read every 10 years, or so, to scrape the crap off of your soul. Thompson had a way of showing the beating human heart underneath whatever situation he was writing about. Poignant and crassly funny and sociologically insightful all at the same time. The world is a poorer place now that he is gone.
