The philosophy of the brotherhood, the brothers, their views and goals are passingly mentioned. Very little on the subject is revealed -- that is, unless you were totally clueless. The few lines about this group reveal little and twist much. It is a Joke!
From a brother.
I guess this is a good book if you've never read anything about Leary or the psychedelic movement. Or if you are a completist. There's a better account of the story of the Brotherhood in an LA Weekly article that you can find on the web. The recent Leary biography does a better job telling the story of Leary's involvement with the Brotherhood.
Yes, as I read through this I kept telling myself "I remember it well".
The story refers to a time of The Flower Power , the LSD culture, born in the pyschedelic age in California, and is fascinating. It talks of links to the underworld and terrorism. With what we are living through today, it seems to suggest that things don't change and the illicit drug industry still thrives today.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has lived through this age, or indeed in California. It shows how the thinking of that time justified the links between idealistic counterculture outlaws and the darker world of crime, violence and corruption Set in America, Europe and Asia it is an interesting read.
