I learned a lot from this book. There are lives lived and then there is Tim Leary. He had more phases in his life that I even knew about. I've never read about anyone who had this much craziness,unbelievable situations, and influence. The book is very well written and thorough. It was a fun read. I especially liked the info near the end of the book about famous scientists, computer wizards, and nobel prize winners who credited lsd with aiding their success. Leary definitely had his flaws and they are laid out here, but his life was anything but boring. This book exceeded my expectations and made every chapter of his life fun to read about. Enjoy.
