Vegans. Skateboarders. Trekkies. The Cult of the Individual is alive and well and expressing itself all over America--and this book proves it. With this enlightening (and sometimes frightening) field guide, you'll delve into the customs, mores, and motivations behind every type of fan, geek, and superfreak, including:

  • Swingers
  • Hackers
  • Dungeon Masters
  • Happening Artists
  • Cryptozoologists
  • Utopians
  • Bohemians
  • Shriners
  • Oenophiles
  • Deadheads
    From music to food, sports to fashion, there are people who take their "hobbies" to an extreme the rest of us can only imagine. With this book, you'll get a bird's-eye view of these hobbies gone wild--from sea to shining sea!
