Published as the 40th anniversary of 1968 approaches, Boom! gives us what Brokaw sees as a virtual reunion of some members of "the class of '68", offering wise and moving reflections and frank personal remembrances about people's lives during a time of high ideals and profound social, political, and individual change.
Remarkable in its insights, profoundly moving, wonderfully written and reported, this revealing portrait of a generation and of an era, and of the impact of the 1960s on our lives today, lets us be present at this reunion ourselves, and to join in these frank conversations about America then, now, and tomorrow.

all time favorite
This is my favorite book of all time. Only partialy because I am a boomer but because it explained to my the why of so many things from my childhood. News that I was to young to understand when it happend and was to new for history books. I grew up with Brokaw on the news and have always found his voice comforthing. Listening to him read the book was listening to him tell a story. It does not have the feel of being read to. There needs to be more books like this out there. Telling us the whys and how items became history

Excellent Commentary of a crazy period of time!
Mr. Brokaw did a good job encapsulating that period of time by giving the perfect overview of the good AND the bad without belaboring either. I enjoyed the book.
