Feb 02, 2006 - If somebody wants to add it, there is a picture of the book here:

Dec 11, 1006 - on the site for the band velvet underground they say the book was found in an old apartment, rather than on the street, as this article suggests. atom of consumption 06:19, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

This article reads a lot like it was ripped from a a page advertising the book or using it for political purposes. There are also numerous modifiers and descriptors which create bias. 05:00, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

I bought the book in a second-hand bookshop in El Cajon, CA, read it, and wrote this article with the intention of summarizing its contents concisely and objectively. The "page advertising the book" you're referring to is the book's own cover page, as this article clearly states. If you have any specific suggestions for improving the content of this article, please implement them or write them here and inform me on my talk page. Thanks. Rp (talk) 15:08, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Jul 4, 2011 - Two things. The article is contradictory in that it states that the author's goal was to make people feel that what they were doing is normal. Then, the article says that the authors language was condemning,,, Which is it? Also, Someone needs to add a section on the critical reception of the book, both by critics and society. Right now the article seems more like a stub for the band Velvet Underground. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:13, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
