"I feel like if you are going to read about Kurt Vonnegut's thoughts you are best with his outstanding "A Man Without a Country." But these are great speeches nonetheless. I wonder if Mark Vonnegut's introduction may be the best part." Dec 18, 2015 04:48PM

Not one of Vonnegut's best but interesting still.

I do wonder how the McCarthy trials and the red scare hurt the country.

And how much Nixon's bizarre mind many have.

And is often better to give land to the country or state in the form of parks then

It's So Easy by Duff McKagan
"I'm not going to do a full review for this since it's pretty obvious what it's about. I will say that it was non-stop interesting and a very smooth read. However, 'It's NOT Easy' to read especially about things like the vomit...ugh!!

"A fascinating read, however Steve Adler does appear to be a giant douche bag."
My Appetite for Destruction by Steven Adler
"The great thing about Steven's book was that he wrote about some things from the band’s history that Duff nor Slash didn’t write about. Like that part about Ritz ‘88 which was actually one of their best performances ever. Did you know they perform..." Read more of this review »

I have no idea how anyone would survive this much drugs. I am happy he is alive but wow.

You really have to do something to get kicked out of Guns N' Roses.

I can't just imagine this imagine this amount of hedonism. And how much money was spent on dru

Very good book. Almost great. Wonderful observations about health care and mental illness. As a fellow bipolar with terrible handwriting I feel like we are in the same club.

Would love to read a book by Mark Vonnegut about how we can fix our health c

“I understand perfectly why some of my autistic patients scream and flap their arms--it's to frighten off extroverts”
Mark Vonnegut, Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So

Mark Vonnegut
“My parents were told by the principal of West Barnstable Elementary School and my teacher that I was a bright boy whose spelling was in the retarded range and whose handwriting was the worst they’d ever seen. I find it embarrassing that I spell so badly. I will do almost anything to avoid being embarrassed, but no effort either on my part or on the part of any teacher has ever dented my utter bafflement when it comes to choosing which letters to put down, how many, and in what order.”
Mark Vonnegut, Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So: A Memoir

Mark Vonnegut
“My father was a proudly antisocial man who spent most of his time at a typewriter, reflecting negatively on his neighbors and society, throwing in things like "Goddamn it, you've got to be kind." The emphasis was on the Goddamn it. He was proud of the fact that I had no friends”
Mark Vonnegut, Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So

Mark Vonnegut
“At the end of his life, which had included financial ruin in the Great Depression, his wife's barbiturate addiction and death by overdose, and then his own lung cancer, Doc said, "It was enough to have been a unicorn." What he meant was that he got to do art. It was magic to him that his hands and mind got to make wonderful things, that he didn't have to be just another goat or horse.”

“Writing is very hard mostly because until you try to write something down, it’s easy to fool yourself into believing you understand things. Writing is terrible for vanity and self-delusion.”
