"Sam Yulish attempts to show how the hippies have changed since the late sixties and early seventies. In his fictional characters he has created memorable portraits of people who lived through it. Throughout "Where Have All the Hippies Gone?" is a nostalgia for a past era that lasted for only 5 or 6 years. Despite its brevity, the era had a great effect on each character's life and is still prominent in day-to-day thinking. But far from being just a nostalgia look back at the sixties, "Where Have All the Hippies Gone?" is a unique book that deals with ideas. Most of the book is devoted to interviews with past and present hippies. This is a brilliant format which gives access to the opinions and the attitudes of the characters. "Where Have All the Hippies Gone?" is a fascinating, unique book. It is a page-turner that can be read in a couple of hours. It is fun, historical, and mind-bending." -David Bruce, Athens News
