Wars, riots, assassinations, a sexual revolution, a civil rights movement, Women’s Lib and a really cool sound-track: What’s not to love about the ’60s? Tom Brokaw’s excellent book, ‘Boom! Voices of the Sixties,’ is a Sociology-101 diamond mine: A comprehensive collection of thought provoking, well written, personal vignettes of first-hand experiences. An oral history of an incredible time.

There’s plenty to ruminate and reminisce about in its 612 pages. Especially for those of us of the pre-septuagenarian set who were already (at least marginally) adults during the period it covers. I’d recommend this book to any and all oral history buffs, and to anyone interested in the period.
