Good plot that moves along nicely. Will provide super holiday reading. I read it in two sittings while sunning myself.

by Gerard DeGroot
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Some well deserved challenges, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent reading for the sixties buffs. It does challenge quite a lot of myths created about that decade and gives good information all round

4.0 out of 5 stars Caught in time, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A super time capsule of West Coast attitudes and delusions of the time. Can seem a bit silly in hindsight!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Buying It, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not buying it. An impassioned argument that a few musicians and activists nearly created a revolution. I was there and didn't see it myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much me, and not enough us, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beatles & Chiefs (Paperback)
Don't expect to find much in the way of historic analysis or even much to describe the lives of most of us at the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't be made today, 19 May 2013

This review is from: Twinky [DVD] (DVD)
A strange tale of intergenarational love. With the increasing revelations about the sexual abuse of young girls by celebrities it casts this film in a very different light

4.0 out of 5 stars 60's West Coast Student revolutionaries get pounded, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A contemporary view of radical student politics of the late 60's. Gives an insight into the incoherence of their idealogical position but shows how for many it was about fun and sex. The establishment plays an expectant role by sending in the police and national guard to beat the s*** out of the student protesters
