Crackpot parents with a crackpot Socialism 30 Jan. 2014
By Piper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title is the best part of the book. Rest is okay but you get the drift pretty quickly. Another one-man's-trip kinda thing albeit with a useful lesson.

I felt so bad for this young man. To have such essentially worthless parents and still be able to make a life for himself.
