Editorial Reviews

Review

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review An eloquent testament to the crazy vigor of this country, a book that persuades us that it's still the luckiest place to be whatever your stripe...An ambitious work...painstakingly thorough.

Publishers Weekly Brilliantly succeeds in getting inside the minds of these communities.

The Washington Post Absorbing...extremely thought-provoking, and great fun to read...I could hardly turn the pages fast enough.

The New York Times Ms. FitzGerald [has] the watchful eye of an anthropologist...writing with lucid sympathy for her subjects...A well-written, well-documented book.

Very intelligent and clearly written investigations into visionary communities in the US. An especially perceptive description and analysis of Rajneeshpuram. Good consideration of how these communities fit into (or more often, did not) the surrounding culture.

I read this many years ago for a history class in the 80's. I recently purchased this again to reread. Still as enjoyable as it was back then.

This AMAZING one-star review is my personal protest against authors (publishers?) who use descriptive adjectives about the quality of the book IN THE BOOK'S TITLE! It reminds me of people who post personal ads where they describe themselves as "very good-looking." I'm pretty sure we can all be the judge of who is good-looking to each of us, and which books we find BRILLIANT. Evidently this book was not all that brilliant to begin with--two reviews in the last 10 years, and countless used copies at $0.01.
