"A lot of fun, but less so if an overdeveloped sense of reader-duty won't let you pass by the plotstopping diatribes that have become Robbins's habit (Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas, 1994, etc.). (Author tour)"
Longterm hospital patients or transcontinental Greyhound riders might happily kill time trudging through Robbins's lectures on every hackneyed social evil from advertising to dogmatism. Everyone else, skip over the pageslong polemics, and enjoy a whimsical tall tale of a potsmoking, teenagershagging CIA agent who travels the globe in hopes of shaking a South American shaman's curse.
