“I have been a fan of his since I was a snot-nosed kid, and his words have been a driving force and influence on my life. If you have read his work before, you know the joys that you are in for. If you haven't, start reading, and consider this your lucky day. For Paul Krassner is an activist, a philosopher, a lunatic and a saint, but most of all he is funny.”
— Lewis Black
 
“Krassner has the uncanny ability to alter your perceptions permanently.”
Los Angeles Times
 
“Wickedly funny... Chillingly funny... A convincing look at a man who knows how to wield absurdity.”
San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Krassner is one of the best minds of his generation to be destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical, naked — but mainly hysterical. His true wacky, wackily true autobiography is the definitive book on the sixties.”
— Art Spiegelman
 
“Paulšs own writing, in particular, seemed daring and adventurous to me; it took big chances and made important arguments in relentlessly funny ways. I felt, down deep, that maybe I had some of that in me, too; that maybe I could be using my skills to better express my beliefs. The Realist was the inspiration that kept pushing me to the next level; there was no way I could continue reading it and remain the same.”
— George Carlin
 
“He is an expert at ferreting out hypocrisy and absurdism from the more solemn crannies of American culture.”
New York Times
 
“Krassner lives in a world where Truth and Satire are swingers, changing partners so often you never know who belongs with whom.”
Playboy

Patty Hearst and the Twinkie Murders
by Paul Krassner

Paul Krassner covered both of those controversial trials. He concluded: “Patty Hearst had been kidnapped, kept hostage and brainwashed, yet she was held responsible and was tried for a bank robbery – in which she was forced to participate – and she was sentenced to 35 years. Dan White had not been kidnapped, kept hostage and brainwashed, yet he was not really held responsible and was tried for assassinating Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk – voluntarily, after blatant premeditation – and he was sentenced to 7 years.”
