The book gives insight into PKD's behavior, and thats valuable for those newly acquainted with the author and want to play and comprehend with the ideas in his texts. Of particular interest is Dick's argument with a doctoral student (and some others) who argue with PKD over the meanings of his work.

Id consider this book a narrated bibliography for those wanting to trace some of PKD's influences.

Well-intentioned, but ultimately thin on the ground in regards to new information about the latter stages of Dick’s life. The author seems at pains to stress the part she had in contributing to the writing of A Scanner Darkly. As other reviewers have mentioned, the book doesn’t seem to have been edited by a third-party, and there are some glaring factual errors, too.

Badly written. Poorly edited. Offers no original insights. For completists only

A good little window into the world of the best science fiction author of my time, and his wife, Tessa.
