I get so I hate to see a book come in teh mail--especially some gifted drivel about the 60s. I leaf through advance copies and heave great sighs. I don't know what to do with them, so I usually don't do anything.

"I felt the same way about The Other Side of Haight--at first. But I finally heaved a sigh and opened it up. From the first page on I heaved no more sighs. It's a great book! Filled with characters that are so clean and clear I thought of them as friends, forgotten friends, from a long, lost landscape. Shadow is beautiful, as are most of the people. She is like H.G. Wells's Time Machine--as soon as you get into her, the sweet old Haight Ashbury lives again."
-- Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest "Fadiman has a perfect ear for the inner music of the sixties."
-- Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi

"Reading The Other Side of Haight rekindled in me the feelings I experienced during the 60s and 70s, when we were experimenting with communities based on consciousness and love and fueled by psychedelics."
-- Ram Dass

"The Magic lives on in The Other Side of Haight. Relive the vision. See the possibilities. Feel the energy. Read the book."
-- Justine & Michael Toms, coauthors of True Work: Doing What You Love and Loving What You Do

"The Other Side of Haight is a revelatory celebration of how hippie culture up-ended the political and social inhibitions of the times."
-- Danielle Renfro, coproducer of the movie, Groove
