Easy Rider, Raging Bulls follows the wild ride that was Hollywood in the 70s - an unabashed celebration of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (both on screen and off) and a climate where innovation and experimentation reigned supreme.

More of a scandal romp than a history, but still interesting
First of all - don't buy this if you want to get a clear and simple overview into the film history of the New Hollywood cinema. That story is in here, too, but it's kind of convoluted and besides the point. Peter Biskind has written a book about sex, drugs and the people who use them while making some films at the same time. At times he seems to be interested only in the scandal of it all, while almost involutarily writing a really fascinating book about art. So if you already know names like Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty and Hal Ashby, then this can really be a valuable multi-biography full of unbelievable anecdotes and brillant insights into the connection of art and power.
Reader Dick Hill stilll enjoys the naughty bits a little too much, but on the other hand he effortlessly carries the listener over some of the more boring parts of this massive volume, so bear with him. A fine audiobook, but not recommended for the uninitiated.
