5.0 out of 5 stars just as good as the seventies!, 14 April 2012

enjoyed reading the seventies - which I knew more about. really enjoyed this as it is one step further back so lots more has been forgotten or only hazily remembered. so it brings lots of it back, again in really useful bite sized chunks. you don't have to read on and on if the subject doesn't interest you. after a few pages it will be something else. that's why, again, I think these books would be great for school kids who need to know more recent history but don't have the best attention spans (perhaps) and want a really broard look at lots of world events. Finally, just like the seventies, if you get depressed by today's headlines just read these books. It's all happened before. we've been through it all before. violence, problems, bad things - as a nation and as a world we do seem to get through them and survive. so there is plenty of room for optimism!

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 A highly enjoyable read, 23 Aug 2009

This book is well worth a read for anyone who is interested in the 1960s. Whilst there is no doubt that this decade brought about many major changes it also gave birth to a large amount of myths. Gerald DeGroot does a great job in debunking these myths. The book is written with more than a hint of cynicism and is both informative and easy to read.
