  • "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test is not simply the best book on the hippies, it is the essential book...the pushing, ballooning heart of the matter"

    New York Times
  • "A life-changer, a rabble-rouser, a mind-blower, a gathering of the tribes, a call to arms, a manifesto for a new society, a car repair manual, a fly-on-the-paisley-patterned-wall account of a cultural revolution – a masterpiece!"

    Jarvis Cocker
  • "Electrifying"

    San Francisco Chronicle
  • "An amazing book... A book that definitely gives Wolfe the edge on the nonfiction novel"

    The Village Voice
  • "Every word seems placed with a care and a skill of contrivance... A major journalistic contribution to the future analysis of our own and America's strange period of this century"
