It's kind of a confuse book, lot's of newspaper news.. from the 60's and some texts and stories... but not well organized.

This was one of my favorite books on the 60's counterculture in high school. It is writtem in more of an experiential voice. The author illustrates by showing you what's going on rather than telling. A must read for anyone interested in how the scene was back in the day.
This is the book that really explains what went on in San Francisco in 67. Von Hoffman does a wonderful job of telling the scene how it was. Ifyou want to understand hippies of the 60's read this book. It takes a different approach of the scene by not foccussing on anything, but covers everything. Von Hoffman did what most writers of the Acid era did or could not do; he was unbiased. The only down side was the strange organization. It had no chapters or real structure. Despite that fact, the book was very fluid.
