I first read this book in 1973, the same year I graduated from High School. I thought it was a good book at the time, so I let a friend borrow it. I never saw it again. I pretty much forgot about it in all of these years.

I joined Amazon Prime back in March, and I've been watching a lot of the show "Firing Line", with William F. Buckley. I saw the episode about "Hippies", with Jack Kerouac, Lewis Yablonsky, and Ed Sanders. This episode was in the year 1968. When they mentioned that Lewis Yablonsky was the author of a book called "The Hippie Trip", I knew that I had once read this book 40 years ago. I had to look it up on Amazon, and found it real quickly.

I reread the book, and still found it to be a nice, easy to read book, and as interesting today as it was back in my younger days. It's like going back in time. I especially like Yablonsky's description of his "Acid Trip". And I pretty much got the feeling that most of those "Hippies" were just a bunch of kids from that era, that were looking for a good time.

Yablonsky is still alive at this writing. He was/is a Sociologist. I think that he already had a Doctorate degree at the time he wrote this book.

I recommend this book to anyone that was around during that era. If you were a Hippie in those days, you might love this book. If you hated Hippies in those days, you might still find this book interesting.

Really well done. Transports you back to the 60s. I feel as though this was an objective and historically significant work.

There are countless after-the-fact books about the 1960s & the hippie movement, and many are well worth reading. But considering that a major part of the genuine hippie ethos was direct & immediate experience, this report from the time in question is especially insightful. Written by a noted sociologist, it benefits from his immersion in the hippie culture at its height (pun intended) & gives a real sense of what it felt like -- the most elusive & difficult thing to get right when talking about the 1960s. While not a member of the hippie generation himself, author Lewis Yablonsky was sympathetic & curious, qualities which served him well. Given his educational background, he brought intelligence & a critical eye to his investigation of the phenomenon -- to use the phrase of the times, "telling it like it is" to his readers. A notable point is that while there was a certain amount of hedonism & self-indulgence, often more among the wannabe hippies, the real ones embraced an openness, vulnerability & trust that few would dare risk, both then & especially now. We could use more of that today!

While this isn't the only book you should read about the hippies, it's an important one that cuts through a lot of dismissive caricatures that were already in place then & that have only calcified in the decades since -- recommended!

I found this book in the public library in 1972, my last year in High school. The book was paramount, because the Hippie movement had become quite abstracted, after Woodstock. The emerging youth like myself coming out of High School, eager to learn about this seemingly exiting and revolutionary way of life related to Rock music and whatever the Woodstock nation had shown to the world; we had no mentors to learn from. No older people, because the older people were way in the past and we were literally the future. So this book came handy like a Bible to give us hints and better yet, academic direction of what had developed through the 1960s and where it was at.
Many kids had long hair in 1972. But they were not hippies. A true Hippie in spirit was hard to be defined as everyone looked like a hippie by the mid 70s, but most people were not. Hippies remained at far distances like New Mexico, Up in Woodstock, places like that. I learned enormously reading this book 42 years ago and it gave me a sense of direction and authenticity as being a Hippie was what I was about at that moment. The academic tone of the writer added something of true credibility to the book. A genuine involvement of Mr Yablonsky in the social research of this subject, that shed light for so many of us who did not have the chance to be in Woodstock, or Monterey Pop. or better yet , for some of us who had never experienced a Hippie Commune. I graduated from this book to the book by Ed Burin Vagabonding in Europe and North Africa. The Hippie Trip was the perfect transition for the book Vagabonding..I eventually began to live that life style of vagabonding in Europe during my mid 20s as I kept loyal to the movement I had been able to studied in depth in The Hippie trip
