A funny and deeply moving memoir of the author's finding Abbie Hoffman's "Steal This Book" while a pre-teen growing up in a Midwest small town at the end of the Nixon era, and of his disappointing "coming of age" as a full-fledged Abbie-loving cultural revolutionary "Yippie" during a '70s-'80s that had long ago traded "The Revolution" for the hedonistic, "Shut up and dance!" ethic of Disco-mania.
