Edited quotes, "Danger! This book will become a Molotov cocktail in your very hands. Jerry Rubin has written The Communist manifesto of out era. 'Do It!' is a Declaration of War between the generations - calling on kids to leave their homes, burn down their schools and create a new society upon the ashes of the old. 'Do It!' is a prose poem singing the inside saga of the movement; 'Do It!' is a handbook for American revolutionaries comparable to Che Guevara's 'Guerrilla Warfare'; it is a frenzied emotional symphony for a new social disorder; a comic book for seven-year-olds; a tribute to insanity."
"Jerry Rubin came into this world in a marine's uniform. He wore a clean face, suit and bow tie while working as a sports reporter. He died - and was reincarnated as an agitator playing and wreaking havoc from Berkeley to New York. He was thrown out of Congress for coming there half-nude with live ammunition. He helped found the Yippies, those dope-crazed Godless insurrectionists. He is on trial in Chicago with seven other conspirators for destroying the Democratic Convention."
"This book is the most important political statement made by a white revolutionary in America today. Eldridge Cleaver, Black Panther leader in exile, has written an introduction to it from Algeria. Media magician Quentin Fiore has designed the book with more than 100 pictures, cartoons and mind-zaps. 'Do It!' To be danced to. Read aloud. Studied. Memorized. Debated. Burned. Swallowed. Eaten. But most important, after living through the experience of this book, take its final advice:Do It!"
Kirkus Review, "Jerry Rubin of the Chicago Conspiracy 7 trial, of YIPPIE!, of the Vietnam Day Committee, of the REVOLUTION, has written a book.Might call it a trip.Might call it Scenarios of the Revolution for the Hell of It (but then Abbie Hoffman didn't have an introduction by Eldridge Cleaver.Right on). Jerry is a Child of Amerika' - 'If I'm ever sent to Death Row for my revolutionary 'crimes,' I'll order as my last meal: a hamburger, french fries and a Coke. '
"Jerry writes about 'Elvis Presley Killed Ike Eisenhower' and 'We Are All Human Be-ins' and 'HUAC Creates Subpoenas Envy and Meets Thomas Jefferson' and other related topics.There are four letter words. There are many celebrated events of radical lore.There is even some autobiographical material.Some people will find it offensive.They will not appreciate the rant and cant and hippie/yippie/revolutionary rhetoric.Others will want to read it.They will find much that's outrageous/subversive/ludicrous and downright entertaining.Except the concluding 'Scenario for the Future/Yippieland. 'That's scary."
