If any relative of mine ever writes a bk about me DO NOT TRUST IT ONE IOTA FOR ONE NANOSECOND. My relatives cd see me beaten to death & it wd just be the Lord's way of showing me the error of my ways or some shit. On the other hand, this bk co-written by Abbie Hoffman's brother seems actually sympathetic & believable. I admired Hoffman & dedicated a bk of mine to him. It still seems odd to me that both Jerry Rubin & Hoffman died in their early 50s - it's hard not to imagine assassination - esp given the nature of their 2 deaths: Hoffman by phenobarbitol OD & Rubin hit by a car. Still, Jack Hoffman makes a good case for believing that Hoffman's death was a suicide. This bio isn't written w/ the flair that Hoffman's own writing was - but then who'd expect it to be?
