    "An excellent read!" A street-level view of life in 60s America. Glasser leads us on a journey of discovery across the States. The reader becomes the traveller in a world populated by bizarre characters, military conscription, and drug-taking. You start to feel like a Carlos Castaneda character where Don Juan is replaced by a series of unlikely teachers in the situations experienced along the way. A description of drug-induced hallucination cleverly provides the feeling of having the experience without having to take the substance. A highly entertaining read that will leave you wanting some more!

    "Great!" I thought this was going to be another 1960s 'retro' sort of work when it was recommended to me, but I found it quite the contrary. The casual narrative style with brutally frank accounts takes the reader on a surreal journey spanning the socially volatile years beginning in 1965 - 1969. The protagonist seemingly stumbles from the backwaters of Florida into San Francisco and at the epicenter of the 'counterculture revolution'. His adventures/misadventures take you across the US and deep into Mexico. It's not like any other book I have read about the 1960s.

    "The Other Side to This Life" An excellent book! I was drawn through 60s America at a breathtaking pace with so much detail that it could only have been written by someone who was there. It reads like the lost next installment of Jack Kerouac's 'On The Road'. Forget the summer of love, George Glasser shows a very different side to to a unique time in American history. I look forward to the follow up Mr Glasser(there is going to be a follow up???)

    "Recollections" I read your book today in its entirety. In today's world this book should be everywhere! You captured everything so completely that you took me back in time. The only difference was the location; I lived in New York City. It parallels today's world: same rhetoric; same empty reasons for war; same greed for money and power; and the same mindless deaths of the young. How come this book was not publicized? Especially when people my age would want to read it given the opportunity.

    "Re: Great!" Thanx for this. I wanted to present a more realistic picture than the 'groovy, love and peace' myth that most people have come to believe. As Dickens wrote in "A Tale of Two Cities," "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Best, GEO
