Editorial Reviews

Tony Kiss
“[Hal Lifson] packed his book with pictures and graphics, and kept the writing short and sweet.” —Tony Kiss, The (Asheville, NC) Citizen-Times, January 17, 2003
Publishers Weekly Online
“In an awesome collection of memorabilia, Hal Lifson’s 1966! brings to life the sights, sounds, fads, and fun of that memorable year. What makes this book different from other reviews of pop culture is that it is Lifson’s personal scrapbook of childhood memories.” — Publishers Weekly Online, December 30, 2002.
Carole Goldberg
“Sure to stir up nostalgia.... An undeniably lively tour of the not-so-long-ago.” — Carole Goldberg, the Hartford Courant
Taylor
“It’s all captured in living color and with great panache in an exhaustive 224-page pop-culture scrapbook. [A] mind-boggling collection of visual trivia, from Sno Cones and Goofy Grape drink packets to Sting-Ray bikes and Gumby flexes.” -— Chuck Taylor, Billboard magazine, February 5, 2003

Quick now, what do these things have in common: the Beatles' "Revolver," Twister, the Ford Mustang, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Frosty the Sno-Cone, The Monkees and Simon & Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence?" Answer: They were all hits in 1966! In an awesome collection of memorabilia, Hal Lifson's 1966! brings to life the sights, sounds, fads and fun of that memorable year.

What makes this book different from other reviews of pop culture is that it is Lifson's personal scrapbook of childhood memories. There are no references to drugs or politics-he was just six at the time, so the book highlights all the fun stuff of the era that a kid would remember: fads, fashions, entertainment, food and toys.

There are some full-color photos of rare '60s treasures that lead readers down memory lane, including album covers, colorful soda bottles, innovative automobiles and collectible issues of Playboy. A California native who attended UC-Berkeley, Lifson wrote a senior thesis that explored how the television programs of the '60s mirrored the events of that era. He remains a virtual encyclopedia of '60s trivia and occasionally rides his lime green Schwinn Sting-Ray around the block. In the Hartford Courant, Carole Goldberg describes the book as "sure to stir up nostalgia" and an "undeniably lively tour of the not-so-long-ago."
