Jerry Rubin, co-founder of the Yippie movement and a member of the Chicago Seven, traces his personal odyssey from radical activist of the 60's to a practitioner in the growth potential movements of the 70's--'Working to change in me the things I opposed externally in the streets.' Finding himself categorized by the press as 'erstwhile' and 'aging' at thirty-four and oppressed by his own lack of inner peace, Jerry Rubin turned his energy inward, seeking a self redefinition through various forms of New Consciousness. Growing (Up) at Thirty-Seven is a very personal and candid account of his experiences with est, rolfing, acupuncture and other forms of therapy--a unique journey to self awareness in which he tells of the person he was and the person he has become; how the originator of the slogan 'Kill Your Parents!' finally learned to love his own parents; and how his new personal philosophy relates to his political views. This is a sensitive psychological self-evaluation--a male confessional that lays bare Jerry Rubin's struggle to find himself as a man in the aftermath of the aborted Youth Revolution.
