Meet the Author

Abbot Howard "Abbie" Hoffman was a political and social activist who co-founded the Youth International Party ("Yippies").

Hoffman was arrested and tried for conspiracy and inciting to riot as a result of his role in protests that led to violent confrontations with police during the 1968 Democratic National Convention, along with Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, Lee Weiner and Bobby Seale. The group was known collectively as the "Chicago Eight"; when Seale's prosecution was separated from the others, they became known as the Chicago Seven. While the defendants were initially convicted of intent to incite a riot, the verdicts were overturned on appeal.

    Amazing, A Revolutionary Bible

    Abbie Hoffman is still the most amazing person ever. Anyone interested in anything dealing with anarchy, hacking, revolutionizing, anything, will love this and read this as a bible. Awesome.

    Abbie Hoffman Should Have Stolen a Brain.

    This book was every bit the crap I thought it would be. Just another America loathing liberal hypocrite who wants to take from the deserving rich and give to the lazy, undeserving poor. Nothing in the book that espouses picking yourself up by the bootstraps and make something of yourself. No, it's filled with advice on how to "screw" the man, without ever stopping to consider that we the people ARE the man. If you follow his advice, you'll be screwing yourself. What a wasted life he led.

    'Just Try It Now,' says Barnes & Noble!

    Like many, I liberated this book from my local bookstore (a B&N?) in the early 70's. At the time I was going to school and working P/T for the telephone company (one of mankind's worst villians according to Hoffman) and thought I had sold out. But I needed the money. Later, I would re-read Abbey's tomb and shake my head at its naivete. Much to my dismay, I realize I have become all that this book rails against -- namely, prosperous and comfortable. I think about this book from time-to-time and remember that radical ideas are the way to the future. Use the system -- for and against itself -- to achieve what you desire. We need another, updated version of this book. Freedom, today is more than a slogan. Too bad Mr. Hoffman isn't around. Thanks, Abbey.

    Revolutionary bible.

    This book is basically a guide with instructions and topics on how to live and fight the system. Coming from Abbie himself, it's packed with knowledge, experience, and character. Needless to say, it is the best damn book I ever stole.

    However, this book has a very exclusive audience, so I would not recommend it to any who is not an anarchist, revolutionary, or radical. Also, it includes a large amount if numbers, addresses, and references, but they are all ourdated, seeing as how this book is 40+ years old.

    Don't buy this book. Steal it, if that wasn't obvious enough.
