Admittedly I was more of an enthusiastic onlooker than fully paid-up participant , but this book brings it all back and is thoroughly researched , well designed and full of terrific colour photos.
A must for those who lived through it and for those others who find the whole era fascinating.
For readers who want to carry on exploring, I would recommend 'Ready Steady Go!' by Shawn Levy and Colin MacInnes's masterly novel-'Absolute Beginners'.
Some great pics and write ups and everything the Mod could want in a book. Scooters, Hairstyles, Clothes, Music, Lifestyle etc etc.
