    Not really as good as I'd been led to believe Interviewees were interesting but did not feel that many interesting uestions were asked

    This was a pretty great read overall Some interviews were interesting than others In fact I generally preferred interviews with people like politians activists and authors than those with singers as they provided a interesting and comprehensive insights into the historical movements of the 60s 70s The women's liberation movement flower power gay liberation movement Black Panthers Black Liberation Movement Vietnam War Nixon era I could go on This book has taught me two important things really 1 A lot of progress has been made 2 Nothing has changed We are still dealing with the same shit I am still hopeful thought because comparing then and now you can see the ripple effects of history and how real change does start to happen even if it does so at a frustratingly slow pace

    Interesting interviews with a varied cast of characters including musicians social and political activists and now forgotten figures who had caught the public's attention Xavier Hollander from 1969 72 Some of the people I had thought might be most interesting were the least worthwhile Jack Nicholson Allen Ginsburg and others of whom I had never heard were fascinating spokesmen for Native American rights early advocates of greater care for the environment etc But my favorite was Buckminster Fuller who epitomizes the lofty minded intellectual that has no idea how absurd and impractical his ideas are A really nice slice of life from an interesting time
