    Having a hippie handbook on how to be the stereotypical hippie, sounds like it would defeat the purpose of the counterculture.

    A great book to read though is The Phat News of Mark by 2 Hawks.

    Like everyone above has said, this book is my Bible. It's witty and adorable and often proves to be quite useful.

    Also have Living on the Earth, as someone mentioned before. I love this book. Some of the stuff isn't very practical advice, as least not for me, but much of it is interesting, if nothing else. I'd recommend this and The Hippie Handbook; I love them both.

    I too read the Hippie Handbook. It comes across as a humorous reading, but, infact it's a delight and very realistic book. I enjoyed reading all about what you could learn about Hippies and it reminded me of the reality of it all.

    It's a wonderful book and I encourage one and all to look into it either for a fun read or memories of today and long ago with a smile.


    Enjoy

    You could get this book in any Barnes and Noble. Pretty cool. Don't read too much into it. I, however, loved the part where it teaches you how to spot out an undercover cop at a festival. It says that one of the ways is to see if they are carrying a copy of the Hippy Handbook, or if they are wearing sandals with socks on... haha.:rolleyes:

    I got that book about two years ago... It's great! Everyone needs to know how to dumpster dive and milk a goat, it's essential. ;)
    Another great book would be 'Living on the Earth' by Alicia Bay Laurel (as mentioned in previous posts). It was published 1971 and has absolutely everything in it from how to make peasant blouses to plant-based medicine. I highly recommend it.
