“His facts put fiction to shame, but then old family fabrications raise their heads, creating a wobbly line between the two… it’s a rollicking ride through a reckless era that’s entertainment for us, likely cathartic for him, and should definitely not be missed.” Full Review

“I LOVED this book! Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. It’s a fascinating journey… Despite the drama and hardships, there is so much humor and warmth in this book. Highly recommended!” Full Review

“Hats off to Carl Hayes, who has chronicled a certain California life for the rest of us, and not only lived to tell the tale, but thrived in the telling.” Full Review

“It is a very wonderful story, quite a page turner… reminded me a lot of my own childhood in the seventies. With some horrible stories to have had to grow up with and a collection of interviews with his Dad, this is really an interesting read! Kudo’s! Loved this book!” Full Review

“Through humor and a tell-it-like-it-was style, Carl Hayes asked for no pity but for a reader who can understand that the baggage we carry doesn’t always define us but sometimes explains us.” Full Review
