Publisher's Summary

From planning the psychedelic revolution with Allen Ginsberg, Peggy Hitchcock, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti to discussing Dr. Albert Hoffman's legendary bicycle ride home after the world's first deliberate ingestion of LSD, Timothy Leary's passion affected an entire culture and influenced modern world history. Leary presents his own story with a veritable Who's Who of the '60s and '70s including Jack Kerouac, Charles Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Charles Manson, Aldous Huxley, and G. Gordon Liddy.

    "A must read for anyone interested in the 60s"
    Where does Flashbacks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best and certainly the funniest!


    Have you listened to any of Timothy Leary’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he is or was a very talented raconteur and this effort is no exception.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story of almost sleeping with Marilyn Monroe is hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    Dr. Leary was mostly misunderstood and often vilified by the popular press. He could, of course, be provocative, which he considered an essential role for any "change agent". What few people realize is that Leary probably played an essential role in the downfall of his arch nemesis, President Richard Nixon. Read or listen to Flashbacks to find out how and why.
