W.E. Lutz has covered a lot of ground in this fun but deep book about life. I say fun, because several times while reading this collection of essays, spontaneous grunts and bellows of laughter would emit.
Lutz Shares the breadth of his experience, which is prodigious. The book describes his personal involvement being employed selling maglev rail systems to nasa, working the trenches in a political campaign, going on mescaline flavored capers with mondo hijinks, hanging out with some elite political figures, working in a Faustian like bureaucracy, stopping at a rural farm and paying a drunk landowner to teach him to fly a real biplane, taking a tour of a cold war nuclear shelter of massive proportions and scale, and well I don't want to give too much away in the review, but the author has lived a very interesting life to say the least.
A very original twist, and a brilliant aspect of this book, is how Lutz specifies the music to be played while reading each chapter. All the music is easily available on youtube and other public domain sources. For example, "Big Black’s “Racer X” from their album The Hammer Party would do nicely as a sound track to this piece,..." was the music suggestion for the chapter called "The Hamburger Generals". The music really added to the different literary tone each chapter creates.
Do not expect an always linear flow to the book. At times it reads like Hunter S. Thompson, at other times it seems like dialogue for a movie. Sometimes it reads like a diary, and sometimes it reads like Finnegan's wake. Lutz reads like a savant intellectual in one chapter, and in another displays intimate familiarity with the most obscure slang and vernacular.
Overall its a fun read, but the intended audience who will "get it" must be both intelligent and highly educated, but not in a stuffy way. I highly recommend the book.
