Five years ago Mr. Fritz's life was changed forever by the "rave experience" which inspired him to write this book in an effort to define and promote the movement.
He lives in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, with his wife and two teenage sons. The whole family raves regularly.
Honestly this book is as good a reference book as it is interesting and entertaining.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who either has lived the history of rave or wants to know the roots of rave culture.
The honesty and love poring out of that book is representatif of the atmosphere of the rave culture.
This is a must read for anyone interested in raves.
Michael Brianson's review below is WAY off base.
