Nearly all of Leary's peer group and fellow travellers through the psychedelic kingdom are rounded up and prove only too willing to talk at length about a man many consider central to the 60s drug culture. Surprisingly, considering that the large scale ingestion of psychedelic drugs (LSD etc.) was supposed to cause brain meltdown and the end of civilisation as we know it, all of them appear remarkably together and lucid.
Structured around Leary's final days after his diagnosis of inoperable prostate cancer, this affectionate portrait never shrinks from the self-serving aspects of Leary's monomania; rather it is fascinating in its treatment of Leary's use of the Internet and obsession with cryogenics as a means of perpetuaung one's own life. What emerges finally is a definitive view of a life well spent.
