I didn’t know much about the Manson family so I got a copy of Dianne Lake’s (youngest member of the Manson family) new book Member of the Family. I found it mostly interesting for its insight into the scene around San Francisco and L.A during the height of the hippy movement. It gives a good peek into how misguided and toxic a lot of┬áthat scene was.
