" Ugh. The description should have been, "I am going to use a lot of catch phrases from the San Francisco sub-culture so you'll know I was really there." The description was completely misleading. The sub-culture could have been summed up in a few paragraphs. That era has been described so many times, and in a much better way that the book brings nothing new to the table. The obscure slang words "can" to refer to spray can of the graffiti artist or "zine" to refer to a underground magazine are totally overused. We get it - you were there. Couldn't finish. Wish I didn't waste my money. The only people that may enjoy this book are people that grew up in that culture. Should have read more reviews before I bought the book. "
