Maybe I just misread the product description, but I felt like the way this book listed in the Kindle marketplace it would have been the full text and was inclined to make the awesomely priced $1.99 purchase. However, as I started reading the book only about 50 pages later did I come across a message stating, "This is the end of the Kindle edition of this book, you can read the full book for free online." I would have gladly paid $5 to read the full book on my kindle, rather than have to go to the website, waste $2 on a product that I will likely not finish now.
The book itself so far seems fairly interesting, if not a little disjointed, and is a Hunter bio written in the gonzo style.
I'd recommend just checking this book out for free online (can do a Google search to find it), if you are interested in reading it, and pick up a Hunter S. Thompson classic on your Kindle instead.
