    I've read about 3 4 books on Ted Kaczsynki and was surprised to find that this is probably my favorite Why? Well this book was written by someone who was in contact with Kaczynski for 20 years and he has a TON of trivial facts and anecdotes that you wont find in all the other books unless of course they're uoting Waites the authorAs i recall there isn't a dull moment in the book It's a page turner I've read other reviews on and people complained that it was about Chris Waites than it was about the Unabomber I found this to be false and was pleasantly surprised Of course Waites does talk about himself but he would have to He's telling it as HE knows it From HIS point of view But it is just the right amount He just gives you the background what he was up to when such and such a thing happened etcIf you want to know little details about Kaczynski and what he was really like this is the book for you

    The gullibility of people mystified me; it's amazing how uickly a criminal is transformed into an icon to be almost worshipped It's a given that criminals have rights but what about the victims and their rights? Somehow I feel our nation's sense of values has become skewed Chris WaitsAfter consuming every video I could on Ted Kaczynski I decided to read this book about him written by Chris Waits a neighbor of Ted's who let him use his land an extensive tract of property comprising an entire gulch complete with mountains ridge trails forests streams and plenty of natural plants and wild game It was in this Montana wilderness that Ted made his home during a 25 year span And that whole time he was allowed on Chris Waits' land free to come and go as he pleased and also camp there and stay as long as he likedOne of the reasons Kaczynski interests me is a similarity he shares with John Forbes Nash JrHe was1 A genius by I tests2 A mathematician3 A man who obtained a PhD in mathematics4 At one time a professor in mathematics5 Mentally ill specifically paranoid schizophrenicThese two advanced degree holders shared those things in common among others Where they diverge is that John Nash used his genius to contribute to mankind while Ted Kaczynski turned his genius to exact revenge upon a society whose progression to an advanced state of technology and knowhow jet airplanes computers skyscrapers noisy cities and so on he deeply resented Ted hated especially people who worked in technology academia and who destroyed wilderness through logging and mining and through transforming forests into cities and making noisy machines These levels of noise such as the sounds of snowmobiles motorcycles airplanes flying by chainsaws and so on threatened Ted right where he lived in a cabin in the Montana wilderness Even as he retreated into the wild the technological society seemed to hem him in reaching his ears even in the most secluded of spots and raising his ire to dramatic levelsThe uote I began with shares my point of view We make these murderers and serial killers into some form of celebrity instead of understanding them as cold blooded killers This book contains much information about Ted's secret locations to hide out and develop his bombs right under Chris Waits' very nose and upon Waits' own land Little did Waits know he was being kind and giving to a serial killer Three stars Interesting read

    Very interesting book written by the man who was his neighbor in the Montana woods Invaluable material if you are interested in True Crime and High profile cases The author however seems to be completely naïve in that it seems impossible he did not link up Ted's bazaar anti social behavior with the strange events in the surrounding areaYou will see from this book that Ted was not the lay low non entity you might think he would have to be to remain invisible for so many decades He seems to have committed massive vandalizing crimes at logging sites and construction euipment and robbing and trashing cabins near the property Even fired on low flying military aircraft with his rifle during the years he was also sending out bombs in the mail As a plus There is a lot of information Not only on the FBI's mission to infiltrate the Montana woods and gather info but also on The Unabomber's Cabin His Hand made Bicycle His Hidden Cachesand how he survived alone

    The author Chris Waits lived close by Theodore Kaczynski the Unabomber for twenty five years They were friends Yet Chris Waits had no idea about the real secret life of his neighborTed Kaczynski In this book the authors detail the life style of some in the rural Montana area The meeting of Chris Waits and Ted Kaczynski their interactions and Chris's involvement with the FBI and the subseuent investigation of Ted Kaczynski and the Unabomber case as it unfoldedThis was a most interesting read It provided much insight into the life of Ted Kaczynski in terms of his personality how he lived and ultimately what he did as the Unabomber It also exemplified the conflict when one has to choose between loyalty to a friend and doing what ultimately you believe is right a difficult choice that Chris Waits had to make many times during his involvement in the Unabomber investigationI have always been fascinated by people's life choices and the reasons for them especially those who are nonconformists for lack of a descriptive word People who do not fit the usual mold interest me because I've always been somewhat of a nonconformist myself I also greatly appreciated the authors wonderful descriptions of the mountains and the Montana high country I could readily see its beauty in my mind's eye

  5. Khalil Merali Khalil Merali says:

    I found the work to be very thoughtful and insightful The author was Kaczynski's neighbor and friend for 25 years and after Ted's capture he began to re examine all of thier past interactions and discussions for clues he may have missed his recollections paint a picture of Ted as a socially akward weak violent but highly intellegent man with extreme rage women issues and revenge fantasies that found thier outlet in violent and murderous actsIncluded in the book are important excerpts from Ted's journal and a lengthy account of the crime and vandalism he inflicted on Lincoln Montana which includes murdering several dogs smashing miners and loggers euipment destroying log cabins and vehicles shooting at helicopters and planes and plans to murder bikers and miners that he almost carried out but ultimately didn't not because of any moral ualms because he was worried he might be caughtIn his journal excerpts it becomes evident he didn't believe in his cause and that it was an excuse for him to feel powerful a way of compensating for his lackluster life

  6. Lisa Lisa says:

    Waits offers an incredibly uniue and detailed perspective about Ted Kaczynski's 25 years living in Lincoln Montana The writing freuently seemed self righteous and indulgent though as if he wrote this primarily to feel appreciated for his efforts and to receive the credit he felt the FBI didn't adeuately offer

  7. Scott Scott says:

    This was written for no other reason than monetary gain Chris was begging the FBI to pay him for his knowledge even after it was clear they DID NOT NEED it to convict Ted Chris is nothing but a greedy piece of grizzly bear scat that used The Unabomber case to make a few dollars Disgusting

  8. Marlena Oechsner Marlena Oechsner says:

    Not a bad book but I went into it with the wrong mindset I wanted to learn about Ted's upbringing and his history and this book was written by his neighbor While it was definitely an interesting read it didn't give me the details I was after family life etc

  9. Sara Sara says:

    Interesting riveting exciting good detail Never interested in the Unabomber before reading this Now I am very interested

  10. Ellen Ellen says:

    Could have been 50% shorter Too much self congratulatory writing by author and FBI Interesting for about 150 pages reads like into the wild
