The swinging sixties introduced several progressive laws to the residents of the British Isles. The conversion of the nation to flared trousers, the legalisation of colour and the right to live in a newly built tower block almost entirely made from asbestos. Yet despite the freedoms gained, the vibrant clothing, the music, often the grooviest experience of the average youth of Britain was down a mine.

Was it that good!

Ahh the1960's. When I was very young and at school. This series bring memories flooding back like a river about to break its banks and flood the 60's. Facts are presented very tongue in cheek. The humours door to history, a very good listener with bone dry, whit and quite a lot of entertainment value. Well written and well read by the author. I would say get this book and settle back and enjoy.
