    Solid book if you're interested in learning about Toronto neighborhood Yorkville's roots as the epicenter of Canada's hip subculture and one of the key locations for the 60s hippie movement in North America along with Haight Ashbury in San Francisco and Greenwich Village in New York City The book is an adaptation of author Stuart Henderson's PhD dissertation so is heavy on academic terminology and analysis and very sociological and anthropological in feel As a result those hoping for a breezy gossipy nostalgic celebration of the sex drugs and rock n roll at the core of the hippie lifestyle will probably be disappointed or frustrated in their attempt to tackle this book It is still worth your time though if you're into Toronto history or 60s subculture
