Product description

Review

"Ronson sets his book up beautifully. It moves with wry precise agility from crackpot to crackpot in its search for the essence of this early New Age creativity.... "

-- Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"

"A hilarious and unsettling book.... Ronson comes off as an unusual cross between Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and "The New Yorker's" Seymour Hersh."

-- "The Boston Globe" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Few more earnest investigative journalists would have had the brilliant bloody-mindedness to get what he has got and hardly any would have the wit to present it with as much clarity." (The Observer)

"Simultaneously frightening and hilarious." (The Times)

"A jaw-dropper of a non-fiction story. It moves with wry, precise agility." (The New York Times)

"A hilarious and unsettling book." (The Boston Globe)

"Ronson sets his book up beautifully. It moves with wry precise agility from crackpot to crackpot in its search for the essence of this early New Age creativity." (The New York Times)

"Supposedly the military has soldiers who can stare at animals and kill them, holograms that scare people to death, psychic spies, and plans for chameleon camouflage suits. In 1979 they were called the First Earth Battalion, and now we learn that they're back to help fight the war on terrorism. Narrator Sean Mangan takes a tongue-in-cheek attitude, making the voices of the characters sound like they're nuttier than Mrs. Fields' cookies. He leaves listeners wondering whether to laugh or lament. His voice has a slight whispery cast, and he extends the last word of every sentence, as if to point out the periods." (AudioFile Magazine) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
