Hippies, flower children, anti- war protests, communes, sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. The tumultuous anti-establishment 1960s would forever alter American society, as long-accepted boundaries gave way to free love, neutral values and political correctness.

Steve Sherr, the product of a typical assimilated Jewish family in the Bronx, spent most of that pivotal decade preparing for a career as a psychologist in the counseling center of San Diego State University. As the ’70s rolled in, he found himself floundering personally and professionally in a tide of moral relativism and fuzzy expectations. He had no compass to help steer his patients or himself to safe waters.
