Told From the British Perspective 19 Feb. 2011
By Glork - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wish I had known beforehand that this book was organized from a British perspective. Not that there is anything wrong with that, mind you, and, "Swinging London", was the place to be in the 60s. But I would have preferred a book written by an American author, so that it concentrated more on the fads, trends, music, and other pop culture of the 60s. For example, having pages dedicated to soccer teams or rugby is just not of interest to me.
