Even though this book is 'old' it still feels new and as relevant as ever. Not only does it pick the best of the greats, it also includes intros by Tom Wolfe to each excerpt, highlighting the novel bits. My favourite chapters are the ones from Hunter S. Thompson (before he fell headlong into gonzo writing) and, of course, Wolfe himself. Essential reading.
