About the Author
Allan Weisbecker is a novelist, screenwriter, award-winning photojournalist, and life-long surfer. He caught his first wave off Long Island, NY, in 1966, when he was 17 years old. Roaming the world in pursuit of waves during the heyday of the counterculture led to a career as a marijuana smuggler. He retired from that trade in 1980 and wrote Cosmic Banditos (Vintage), a gonzo rendering of his pot-pirate experiences.
From 1980 to 1995, Weisbecker was a screen writer for film and television programs including Miami Vice. During the 1990, he developed his career as a journalist and photographer, and his work now frequently appears in Smithsonian, Men s Journal, Popular Photography, American Photo, Sailing, and all the major surfing publications. Weisbecker lives on Long Island."

It's probably the most entertaining and inspiring piece of quasi-fiction you'll ever come accross.
It just needs to be made into a movie with Johnny Depp playing one of the main characters.
Buy this book. If you hate it, contact me and i'll buy it from you, and punch you in the face for having terrible taste in literature.
This book is about international drug smuggling and quantum physics, it reads like a movie, has extreme violence, drug crazed hilarity, and a cute pooch to boot. In short, it rocks. Buy it now while you can - no, buy two copies, and then you have one to lend.......
I found the quantum physics links somewhat contrived but it was an interesting attempt to make an average book appear more thoughtful and involved.

I do not, as yet, have this book. Why? Because I live in Australia. I had it sent to my Mum in the UK. My Husband, who is currently visiting the UK, will bring it back with him. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Sam Jones
