I am currently reading a book on Hunter S. Thompson.

A little about him from wikipedia

Hunter Stockton Thompson (July 18, 1937 February 20, 2005) was an American journalist and author, most famous for his novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He is credited as the creator of Gonzo journalism, a style of reporting where reporters involve themselves in the action to such a degree that they become central figures of their stories.

What an amazing trip he had through life. The books is just well Gonzo. To get a feel for his life here are a bunch of videos that documented him. I am utterly amazed at all the craziness yet inspired by him as well.
