As the Vietnam War wore on, peace marchers were becoming disillusioned. The protests were larger than ever, and yet Washington was deaf to their cries. A small group of students and a professor plot a drastic move to call more attention to their protests. The plot becomes successful; and the plot thickens. A change in their intention leads to problems and provides a surprise ending.....

Neil Mahoney, PhD, was born and raised in Roxbury, Boston. He graduated from Boston University in the late fifties and moved to San Francisco in 1964, just in time to involve himself in the middle of the protest movement of the 60's. He holds multiple degrees in addition to his PhD in Public Policy, including two Masters degrees and a clinical hypnotherapy certification he obtained in his 70's. He has been an educator most of his life, fortunate enough to teach in multiple venues across all age ranges, from individuals to large groups, serving at one time as Chairman of the Landmark faculty. His passion and lifelong study has been the interconnection between mind and brain, the science of human behavior. The Harvard Square Mob was written originally as a screenplay and was once picked up by a major studio. It was rewritten as a short novel, which sat on his desk for several years until a friend urged him to publish it.

A personal view of Frank and others where we learn as we read.  We begin to think about happiness and what it means to us.  Such lessons in this well written book.   The book is a quick read but contains so much to  think on.  From page one to the end, you will be engaged, interested and excited.   We're taken back to the time of the Vietnam War.  Those of us who are old enough remember that period of time.  Some may have even protested that war, believing in peace.  That was a time of hope, of freedom of expression and that was done through protesting.  Most were peaceful. So unlike today.  But did the government even know how many were out there, wanting and needing peace.  NO!  It all came down on deaf ears, at least as far as the government was concerned.   But there were some, who gathered together to possibly make their ideas of peace better known.   As the pages turn, the story takes a turn and as the end nears, it isn't at all what you expect.   This is a read that you are THERE!  You are amidst the protestors and you are seeking that peace from war. Afterwards you have much to think about. Today, the protests have taken a different turn.  Different reasons and not exactly like the 70's era where the protesting was for peace.  Exactly what does happiness and peace mean to you?
The author sent me a copy of this book and I was under no obligation to read and review.

I would give this book  5  STARS.
