Psychedelic Haze...Bad Trip

The 60's was the generation with it all. I wanted to really enjoy a nostalgic trip through the decade. Alas It was a bad trip.

It was like a psychedelic drug induced haze where you have a moment of clarity. Or like Laugh In dances before everything stops for the joke. It was a laundry list of events with a few comments.

The things you would have thought would get top billing were brushed to the side. The decade was chocked full of events so there was no shortage of material. But it lacked integrity and clarity.

Maybe it is a trip best taken with mind altering drugs. Hey rose colored glasses wouldn't help this book.

Save your money. Don't buy this book or any of the other decade books by the same author. It is a bad trip better off avoided. Peace!
