It is a collection of memoires by the author
Spoiled by the fact there is no story as such to follow. The author just dips into various memories at random a writes a bit about each.
I was a 60s child so thought I would enjoy it but sadly it is painfully boring and so badly written .
I gave it 2 stars for letting me relive a few old memories.
But in terms of a book it is just devoid of a story and it is clear he was a bit of a radio anorak .
Would not recommend this or any other by him, I regret bu...more
Excellent piece of nostalgia describing what it was like to grow up in Britain in the 1960s. It covers the whole decade and not just the swinging sixties period. I was a teenager in England in the 1960s and this book provided me with hundreds of reminders of my life back then. It also turned up lots of things I had forgotten. I was given the paperback as a present and enjoyed it so much I bought the Kindle edition to dip into whenever I feel nostalgic. A well written collection of memories.

Started this book this afternoon about 4pm. and have read about half at 6pm.
Fascinating all the memories this brings back from childhood in Britain in the 60's.
I'd recommend it to anyone who remembers, or would like to be reminded, of all the typical l960's things, fashion, music, food, games, etc.etc.
Finished this book in about 4 hours, but really enjoyed reading it, I kept going 'God, I remember that'!! Quite a few illustrations as well.
A wonderful piece of 1960s' British nostalgia with so many reminders of how life was in England back in the 60s. A well written bundle of memories. Great.

Disappointing! Too similar to his previous book 'A 1950s Childhood!'
Would have been 4 but more relevant to the British.
Interesting, but probably much more so if you're a Brit.
Really good trip down memory lane. Great book.
My era and I found it very interesting.
