Book Description:

1969 & Then Some is a memoir of the 60s and the influence of those years over the decades that followed. Romance, psychedelic insight and motorcycling evolve with the narrator maturity, such as it is, and non-compromise on morality and the undying spirit of adventure in nature.

While the 60s is often discounted or as ephemeral—as a social aberration—1969 & Then Some offers keen insight to lingering values that cannot be separated from significant segments of the most significant population group alive today, the baby boomers, many of whom still hold sway in key areas of social and cultural evolution.

Book Description for Brainstorm:
Brainstorm is a first-person narrative of incidents leading up to, through and after a cerebral aneurysm and hemorrhage in the immediate family. The action includes the dramatic process ongoing in trauma centers designed to process sudden occurrence of aneurysm, cerebral hemorrhage and morbidity. The American Medical Association estimates that 3% of all populations have aneurysm that may or may not leak—about 3½ million people in the U.S.

While the procedures and protocol for sudden onslaught are rote and fundamentally unchanged over the ages, hygienic and technological advances have reduced hazards. Death and debilitation statistics are still daunting, and Brainstorm factors a new component into the procedural mix, whereby a conscientious and healthy husband and wife seek participation in the process, to no avail.

My review:
 This is a very busy book. If you are old enough it makes you remember, it makes you laugh, it makes you think. My biggest complaint is everyone on the planet in 1969 is mentioned in this book except me. That may be because I wasn't 2 until the last few days of the year, not many mentionable moments I guess.
  The story Robert Wintner tells is basically his story. He tells it so well, you almost feel like you are with him.  He is very candid and doesn't hold anything back. I love some of the words he uses. Like his coat and scarf are his rig.
  Younger people may or may not really get anything from this book since it has nothing to do with computer games and cell phones. It has nothing to do with having everything handed to you. There is no basic story line with and ending. This is a memoir of a time in Robert Wintner's life. He tells you about the carefree days of his life. I will admit some parts of this book are just plain messed up. But from movies and other books I have read the hippie days was a period of time when no one had any worries. They did as they pleased and there were no real consequences. There is a lot of foul language in the book, so if you have tender sensibilities you may not want to read the book. The F word is used a lot.
I was given the audible version of this book in exchange for my honest review.
