The narrative of this book recounts moments in time through my years of knowing John Draper interspersed with collected memories from friends and relatives and the stories and personal history of John, as told by himself. It spans John’s 72 years on the planet, and my 21 years of knowing him.
I have been Johns roommate several times, business partner, and close friend over the years. I have considered him a very interesting case for character study, and an unfathomable wealth of complexities and paradoxes.
I have hoped to portray him in an honest but affectionate light. It is a 'warts and all' portrayal balanced by the incredible story that is his life.
