    The book starts out well and Kirkpatrick clearly shows why 1969

    The book starts out well and Kirkpatrick clearly shows why 1969 is the
    year everything changed. Its an interesting look at social history. I
    felt that there was too much emphasis on the gory details l about the
    Manson and Zodiac killings. I skimmed most of the chapters on
    baseball, but a fan would probably enjoy them.

    an Absorbing Book!

    Finally, a book about a fascinating year in our country's history! 1969 was a year that challenged, changed, revolutionized, and entertained our nation, from politics, sports, music, the moon landing, the Vietnam war, its accompanying protests, Woodstock and so much more. Not only did it transition the 60's decade into the 70's decade, but many of the changes and influences are still felt today. Whether you were a part of 1969 or not, you will want to capture the feeling of this pivotal year. Once you start reading 1969, The Year Everything Changed, you will not want to put it down!

    Engrossing, exhaustive, and enjoyable!

    This is an incredibly detailed and fascinating history of an important year. The author captures the spirit of living through an amazing 12-month period in America. "1969, The Year Everything Changed" is the first and only book to tell the story of this pivotal year!

    A classic book about a classic year!

    It's about time someone wrote a book on this amazing year. '1969' delves deep into what the author calls the zeitgeist or "time spirit" of the year and recreates the feeling of living through the most fascinating year of a most fascinating decade. Think of it - in the same year, America witnessed the moon landing, Charles Manson, Woodstock, Joe Namath's guaranteed Super Bowl upset of the Colts, the "miracle" Mets, historic tours from the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, Midnight Cowboy and Easy Rider, Oh Calcutta and Hair, so many classic albums and films. This is a fine addition to literature on recent American history.

    Misleading

    This book is neither the 1st nor only book on this topic. Moreover I find the 1st few reviews to sound as if they were written by the same hand.
