Black and brown/tan book boards. Although a little self-serving and may be cashing in on the abduction, it's accurate. Ends too abrubtly and leaves too many questions as to what happened after the shoot-out.

Patricia Campbell Hearst (born February 20, 1954) is an American author and actress. A granddaughter of the American publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, she became internationally known for events following her 1974 kidnapping by a left-wing. A granddaughter of the American publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, she became internationally known for events following her 1974 kidnapping by a left-wing terrorist group, the Symbionese Liberation Army. Hearst was found 19 months after being abducted, by which time she was a fugitive wanted for serious crimes committed with members of the group.

Patty Hearst's kidnapping – In an autobiography, Hearst details her abuse at the hands of the SLA. In the book, she says she was kept locked in a closet for 57 days, as well as subjected to radical rantings, physical abuse and rape. Eventually she was offered the choice of joining the SLA or being killed.

Patricia wanted Steve. Listen to books in audio format instead of reading. After graduating from Princeton, Steve Weed took a job teaching math at Crystal Springs, and his shaggy good looks generated more than academic interest among the girls in his classes. Patricia began driving her MG to his apartment for, she said, extra help with her geometry homework. They began sleeping together right around her seventeenth birthday.

The center of Weed's book and the value of it lie in his description of the chaos that overtakes people and institutions . This book is pretty good, however, and Weed is a good New Journalist.

The center of Weed's book and the value of it lie in his description of the chaos that overtakes people and institutions caught in a sudden crisis. He succeeds where both the media and the defense attorneys’ statements have failed-in making Patty Hearst and her experience not only believable but terribly likely. With all its lapses of taste-perhaps especially in its lapses of taste-this book is a Gothic fable, a perverse fairy tale, for our times.

A well written book and a must for anyone interested in the case. I have read many books on the SLA and this book has information and a perspective you cannot find elsewhere especially about Sarah Jane Olson, Tribal Thumb and the whole leftist scene in the bay area at the time. Of course Steve goes into great detail about his relationship with Patty and how and why she came to embrace the SLA, he explains it in explicit detail and it made me understand it in a way no one else has been able to explain it. Unfortunately it's a sad story and I can feel his pain which is understandable considering the book was published in 1976. I wonder how he feels now? For me, I'm still sad. I'm going to read Patty's books last and give her the final say on the kidnapping. FYI, I'm a conservative right wing nut job but starting reading books about the left in an effort to understand them, I would encourage people on both sides of the political spectrum to step outside their echo chamber and learn about the other side.

A fascinating account of Berkeley in the 70s. Berkeley in fact in that era was a unique conjunction of radical politics, cultural innovation and technological change. It all pointed to the future: not just Steve and the Woz, but Steward Brand and Alice Waters and, yes, the Symbionese Liberation Army. What we take today for granted was a dangerously radical political stance in the 70s: the fight against racism, "ageism," paternalism, the fight for prisoners' rights. The SLA saw this conjunction as so radical that it required immediate violent action. Others went on to fund culture changing corporations, write books that anticipated the internet (The Whole Earth Catalog), and completely rethink cuisine. And the SLA became convinced that the radically of their positions required kidnapping and murder. Mixed in with the self-affirmation and self-glorification of so many in the Bay Area was a current of self-destruction.

Steven Weed's book is undoubtedly self-centered, as he leads us on a wild goose chase of meetings with revolutionaries (that lead nowhere) and endless accounts of the Hearst family angst. But mixed in are a few pages--there should have been a lot more--depicting the radical stances and neighborhoods of Berkeley in the 70s. The best pages are devoted to brief histories of the individual SLA members and how they came together--in the hothouse of Berkeley politics of the period.

I love you, Steven Weed. I could feel your pain. You truly loved Patty. You were always there for her, supportive, enjoyed your life, apartment, neighbors, the Wash House, and you should not be forgotten. Your pain was palpable. The title says it all. Did Patty forget she had a life with you? This book is wonderful for those of you who want to learn more about the man who was Patty's fiancé. If you want to learn more about Patty, buy her book.

Shows the human side of Patty, and what it was like from the Hearst family POV. Enough has been written about the abduction, this is a necessary personal view of Patty.. Although a little self-serving and may be cashing in on the abduction, it's accurate.
Ends too abrubtly and leaves too many questions as to what happened after the shoot-out.
A Disappointing, self serving attempt to cash in on the abduction. Spends too much time discussing a blissful relationship with Patty and not enough about the abduction, etc. Completely ignores the time Patty stayed with the Harris' following the shoot out in LA.
Spends way too much time wallowing in his own self-pity.
No wonder Patty wanted to stay with the SLA.
