About the Book

This is the story of the Boomer Generation and what it was like growing up during the 1960s, arguably the most exciting and momentous time in our nation’s history. Over 77 million Baby Boomers witnessed the Cold War, the threat of nuclear war, the moon landing, Vietnam, the civil rights movement, the women’s movement, the sexual revolution and so much more! Whether it was school air raid drills, a first kiss, surfing escapades, Italian Sunday dinners, Christmas Eve celebrations, visits to Brooklyn relatives, cross-country trips, high school proms, part-time jobs, college applications, sexual encounters, or family funerals, we all went through some variation of these adolescent experiences, all delightfully described in Baby Boomer Rewind in a series of entertaining stories. There will never be another Woodstock, nor another Beatles. The author recounts these and other memorable events as well as his personal experiences growing up in the 1960s with amusing stories that reveal what life was like in those amazing times, and how different life was then from now.
