My understanding is that the text of Make Trouble
is simply the transcript of a speech he gave at the Rhode Island School of Design. It was reprinted on the website of Time magazine and is available here. http://time.com/3922739/john-waters-graduation-speech-risd/
The video of the speech is available here: https://vimeo.com/129312307
The book places some illustrations next to the text, but if you just want the content those are two solid alternatives to shelling out eight bucks.
