Yes, that's how I remember it
on 3 December 2017
As I was reading this book, I kept recalling things that the author was mentioning on every page. It’s an evocative read that mostly kept me engaged across the pages.
This book shows the cultural uniqueness of the 1970s and also how innocent our attitudes were during this decade, especially if you were young at the time.
The book contains some context-setting, with lists of major events of the year. Proof-reading might have eliminated some typos on names, but its broadly useful to have this information as reminders of the time.
There are also lists of tv programmes, toys and games, holidays, fashions, collecting fads, and more, which will strike a chord for anybody who was there. The 1970s certainly was a most diverse decade and the writer conveys those ever-changing times.
The author includes his own opinions and perceptions of the time which probably reflects many young peoples’ feelings about the time.
I will read this book again as it has a lot of detail.
