About the Book
David Haldane arrived in 1973 Berkeley as a budding young journalist. What he discovered over the next 18 months writing for the legendary Berkeley BARB, however, changed him forever.

It was a colorful moment in American history as the leftist politics of the 1960s morphed into what would become the human potential movement of the '70s and '80s. Haldane recorded it all in breathless detail, chronicling the eccentricities of the counterculture and, in the process, engaging in a quest of his own.

This book tells the story of that quest, peopled by the sometimes profane - but always fascinating visionaries of the time.

You'll meet:
  • Joanna Leary, who wanted to leave earth.
  • Uri Geller, who bent spoons with his mind.
  • Rennie Davis, who found God in a fat kid.
  • Zakatarious, who worshipped a Golden Calf.
  • Len Adams, who practiced self-fellatio.
  • Jack Goff, who made pornography.
  • And many more.
