Anita Thompson didn't write some cutesy book about her husband. She didn't slap together stories from his famous and powerful friends. She isn't trying to be the new Hunter S. Thompson either. With her book The Gonzo Way, she explores Hunter's effect on American culture, his ability to find the fun in any given situation, and most importantly the philosophy he used to live his life.

If all you know of Hunter S. Thompson is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas then Anita Thompson's homage to her late husband is going to surprise you. He was an incredible man, and the acid dropping ether-head you've read or heard about is one tiny slice of the HST pie.
