Psychedelics and computer history two of my favorite topics This book would have been improved if I d had the patience to chart a timeline while I was writing it I think because as other reviewers have stated it s very difficult to keep track of the main characters The structure isn t organized strictly by time it jumps back and forth between years particularly towards the end or by subject making it difficult to remember who a particular player is when their only previous appearance was 60 pages prior but it s full of richly interesting stories and uotable moments Recommended if you re into the topic but I can t imagine it would appeal to a casual reader very much
