Popular history done right 18 décembre 2013
Par surfimp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is a great read and I wasn't able to put it down. I felt the author did an excellent job of combining voluminous research and interviews along with recollections of his own youthful dalliance with smuggling, thereby personalizing and investing the story with a sort of authenticity that many historians can't muster.

The "scammers" featured here are cast in a sympathetic but still honest and critical light. Although the author doesn't explicitly make the point, you can see a tragic arc in each of the stories: they got interested in illicit trade to help finance their surfing / hippie lifestyle, but ultimately each one of them was consumed by the trade and most set surfing aside to focus on making their scores and living the high life (literally and figuratively). This led to predictable consequences, but even though you can pretty much guess what's coming, the stories and ingenuity of the protagonists is truly fine entertainment. This is a great story told well.

Must Must Read 14 novembre 2013
Par TMBrown - Publié sur Amazon.com

In Thai Stick, Peter Maguire and co-author Mike Ritter manage to capture not just the wild-wild east of the early marijuana trade, but the story of an entire generation testing what it was to be an "outlaw" in all kinds of new ways. Some of us, perhaps ignorantly, tend to regard surfing as the preserve of laid-back "dudes" without a hell of a lot of ambition besides the next big wave, but Thai Stick explodes that notion, showing us hard-hard watermen with more than a little capitalistic ambition and a hell of a lot of balls. Great stories, great book.

Enjoyable read, well researched. 20 mai 2014
Par Harold - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am not a writer, but I am an avid reader and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It appears to be well researched, and the author has gone to great lengths in his research and exposed himself to no little personal risk to bring us the characters and tales of adventure experienced during the era of thai stick smuggling.
I would love to read a follow-up book on the smugglers that brought us the less potent Central and South American weed that more of us would be familiar with if, like myself, one grew up in the 60's and 70's.
Great little book.
Get it. Read it. Reminisce.
This is a good historical perspective on West Coast smuggling 10 novembre 2014
Par House Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a good historical perspective on West Coast smuggling. The mindset of the scammers as they started and as they made a lot of money was briefly touched upon, but I think more can be said about it. It was interesting reading that a lot of people coming of age in the 60s might be able to relate to. The children and grandchildren of these characters may have a harder time doing so. The times are less free. Law enforcement is so technological now that this kind of trade probably couldn't happen on the scale that it did. Those that took part in this story are getting old and passing away so there is a need to have their stories told before first hand accounts can no longer be found.
