Response to Not "Hells Angels"

It's compilations show Thompson in all of his weird, twisted glory, from his early days as a hack writer for a travel magazine, to covering the Nixon Watergate hearings. Another good book is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It really captures all of the doc's warped lifestyle, his hilarious drug and alcoholic excesses, plus the many odd, endlessly funny misadventures the good doctor took part in. It also makes one wonder how Thompson ever lived long enough to committ suicide by blowing his brains out with a 44 magnum.
