whatever my impression of leary has become, this is exceptionally well written, researched and balanced biography by an author that could write entertainingly about the hardening of faecal matter and make it interesting and valid! contains all we need to know, and set out in a neutral narrative that allows the reader to form opinion and learn. what more? i have thoroughly enjoyed this, 'k.l.f.....' and 'stranger than we can imagine....', now looking forward to a 'trip' down 'watling street' in july!
The book is a very honest account ; Leary was certainly no saint, and his treatment of his women and children was sometimes a long way from perfect, and he could be foolish and mercenary. His work on the use of LSD was an eye-opener, not advocating it as a way to oblivion but as a whole new way of seeing. The author ends by saying how much Leary's work influenced the development of personal computers and the internet, making them the intuitive and fun things they are today rather than a boring tool for business. Well worth a read whatever your views on the use of drugs.
This book tells the story of a normal guy who went to the limits. He loved life, he lived life...and paid the price. He thought he had found the key to unlock the door to a revolutionary existence......but of course we are talking drugs.....and inevitably a false state to reality...or is it.
There are pieces of Tim in everyone. Enjoy.
