A MemoirBook - 2003
This is the story of a young man and a generation of angry youths who rebelled against their parents and the unfulfilled promise of the sixties. As with many self-destructive kids, Levine's search for meaning led him first to punk rock, drugs, drinking, and dissatisfaction. But the search didn't end there. Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and violence, he looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion against what he saw as the lies of society. Fueled by his anger at so much injustice and suffering, Levine now uses that energy and the practice of Buddhism to awaken his natural wisdom and compassion. He finds his most authentic expression in connecting the seemingly opposed worlds of punk and Buddhism. Ultimately, this is a story about maturing, and how a hostile and lost generation is finally finding its footing.--From publisher description.
