"Summer of Love is a defining rock-culture book--if you want to know what it was really like to live the sixties, this is the one to read."
-- Stephen King

"If you want to know how the San Francisco music scene developed, Joel tells you."
-- Jerry Garcia

"A backstage pass to the wildest, boldest, scariest era in American rock and roll. Whether you're a Deadhead, district attorney, or aspiring pharmacist, you'll be blown away by Joel Selvin's story of Haight-Ashbury, it sreckless geniuses and their unforgettable music."
-- Carl Hiaasen

"Joel Selvin spins out stories in Summer of Love like an acid-age papa unravelling counterculture legends around the old electronic campfire. Warm, human, knowing and funny, this is no flashback--it's a trip."
-- Dave Marsh
