Read in January, 2010 , read count: Once

Written in a journalistic style, Page outlines his youth and early twenties encounters of self-exploration. Although he attributed much of his ‘60s experiences to Asperger’s, I found his episodes of alcohol and drug abuse pretty typical of many of his peers during that time.

He passionately loves music and writes in rich detail of operatic and classical music. At times, it was a bit over-analyzed for my taste.

Other than the Epilogue portion of the book, I thought Page’s stories were a bit tedious and due to his Asperger’s, unemotional.
