it was amazing

As my rating indicates, I really enjoyed this book. I suppose that much of my appreciation stems from the fact that I was a college and graduate student during the sixties and thus experienced or witnessed many of the things the people in this book recount. It was interesting to see where my perceptions and memories paralleled or differed from those told about here. Although most of the people Brokaw interviews are prominent in one way or another--singers, politicians, businessmen, etc.--he does provide a considerable variety of viewpoints and experiences, for not everyone who lived through the sixties was a war protester or drug user. It might have been useful to interview some "average" people, but no book can tell the full story.
