Although the photos, vintage advertisements, and posters are great, this book's text leaves much to be desired. It's almost as if the book didn't get proofed. While the text offers some interesting facts about the impact of teenage culture on American society, it lacks depth. If you enjoy vintage advertising and fashion history, you will enjoy the images; however, if you are looking for a well-written social history of the topic, read another book.
