Overview

What do you say to a hilarious tour of the coolest trends and baddest fads of the century? An A-to-Z ride on the pop culture waves that have made us what we are, Bad Fads takes you from the flapper styles of the 20s to the genius-defying Rubik's cube, from thigh-spilling hotpants to the rise (and fall) of the toga party, from the Ouija board to Pac-Man mania. In this retro-ramble, Mark Long goes behind the trends, revealing their obscure beginnings, their often unlikely paths to popularity, and their inevitable - and humiliating! - tumbles into the dusty warehouse of history. A must-have for any observer of the crazy games we all play, Bad Fads illustrates the very heart of our bizarre and ever-changing culture.
