Reviews of : Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman PDF Book
Inside this Book – I read this book (in it’s online format) in high school. It amused the hell out of me as a history book, seeing how easy it used to be to steal anything you needed. It taught me to understand anarchy as a philosophy, rather than a symbol that punks saftey-pinned onto their jackets. I thought Abbie Hoffman was Robin Hood. But later in life, I did some research on Abbie Hoffman. He’s basically a sociopath. He didn’t exactly come up with the material in the book on his own, so much as he joined up with the Digger movement in San Francisco and turned their means of feeding, clothing and housing people into a how-to manual for freeloaders. By exposing all these gaping security holes in nearly every industry, the industries closed those holes and the Digger movement had to go legit and was less effective because of it. There are still hippies wandering around gentrified Haight with nowhere to crash and nothing to eat because of this, though I believe they’ve assimilated with the ordinary homeless population. Basically, Abbie Hoffman is a Dick.
Inside this book –Steal This Book PDF Book by Abbie Hoffman – Perhaps the best title ever for a non-fiction book. This is a self-liberation manual. Full of practical advice. How to use a penny for a nickel in a pay phone, for instance. All of it now an intoxicating trip into the Hippie past. My copy is highlighted. I read it when I could actually use the info. But I don’t think I actually used any of it, except the address of the Berkeley Free Clinic. The info wasn’t really the point. Hoffman was propagating a state of mind: an attitude toward authority, and toward the adventure of living. Take charge, he was saying. Don’t accept what they tell you, or what they hand you. Don’t behave the way the want you to. You ask the questions. You decide what matters. Go for it. Except ‘Go For It’ hadn’t been invented yet.
