What else would you read after the book '1968'? ;) I'm doing research for a book I want to write some day that will take place in the Sixties, so of course I had to read this one when I saw it in the bookstore. It's divided up into "seasons" and covers all the great events of 1969 ('great' meaning, well, fabulous, and in many cases not-so-fabulous, or downright horrifying). Some of the events covered are the ongoing Vietnam war, hippies, the Moon Walk, the Manson murders, the Zodiac Killer, Woodstock, and the disastrous Altamonte concert. Quite readable and I highly recommend it!
