From Abba to Zoom: A Pop Culture Encyclopedia of the Late 20th Century by David Mansour (Andrews McMeel Publishing 2005) (306.0973) is an entertaining and memory-evoking encyclopedia of popular culture from the 1970's through the turn of the century. This is a cute concept. My rating: 7/10, finished 9/17/13.

For Gen X-ers who are slaves to pop culture (as I am), this is a fun, encyclopedic walk down memory lane. The expected references are all there, of course, but some of the entries will surprise you. I must confess, I had nearly forgotten about "Wonderbug" and "The Groovy Ghoulies." Vive la trivia!

I didn't read the entire book but read bits and pieces of it. It was very entertaining but since the copy I read was from the library, I eventually had to return it. I might just get my own copy.
