Top critical review

Maybe it's a deliberate trope, but the repetitions in this book come off like the ramblings of an acid casualty. Also totally lacking in emotional depth - again, much like the subject of the book. After the first gripping chapter, It feels as though this was written by a sweaty undergraduate up against a deadline who's done the research but not formulated any depth of theory. Appreciation of Higgs' KLF book led me here, a much better read with stylistic surprises that aren't accidental. Read that instead if you want good writing - and if you want to learn about Leary, be prepared to be bored by his narcissism and idiocy (Leary's, not the author's).
