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.

One of the best and certainly the funniest!
Yes, he is or was a very talented raconteur and this effort is no exception.
The story of almost sleeping with Marilyn Monroe is hilarious.
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.
