PULL.


Steal This Book by Abbie Hoffman

First published in 1970, the classic alternative guide to life is considered by some to be 'the single most important piece of pop culture to come out of the Viet Nam era'.

Spider-Man Confidential: From Comic Icon to Hollywood Hero by Edward Gross

Gross adds nothing new to a story known by anyone with even a passing interest in comics.
