Product description

Review

Time really does fly and it comes as a shock to realise that 1970 is already 40 years ago, but as you dip into this entertaining book you quickly become aware of how different things were in the decade that began with the 1970 World Cup in Mexico (remember the song 'Back Home'?), Apollos 13's aborted mission to the moon and Edward Heath's victory in the General Election, reached its mid-point with Bill Gates founding Microsoft and Lord Lucan disappearing after the murder of his children's nanny, and ended with the 'Winter of Discontent', bank rates at a record 17 per cent, andf Margaret Thatcher becoming the country's first female prime minister...The author takes us on his own, often humorous journey, recalling schooldays (dodging chalk thrown by the teacher etc.), flared trousers, cheeseclth shirts, accidents involving platform shoes, and outings in his parents' Vauxhall Viva which was eventually replaced by a Hillman Avenger. --This England
