    A Piece of Woodstock

    After visiting the Bethel Woods Museum of Woodstock and the '60s and after reading all the stories and reports of the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, I found Myron Gittell's book on the medical services at Woodstock to be a real gem.

    This book narrates how medical services were provided at the Woodstock Concert in 1969. Naturally, any large group of people would have medical issues to deal with across a 3+ day period. Careful plans were made at Woodstock to provide medical services for 40,000 or 50,000 people, but when the event took place, 400,000 or 500,000 people showed up. The ground was shifting under the feet of the doctors, nurses and other volunteers who had to adapt to the changing conditions, and this book nicely encapsules their efforts.

    I think part of what makes this book such a pleasure to read is the expert way that so many stories are woven together. Or maybe the documented details provide a really clear view of what Woodstock was like. Or maybe it was that the author captured the spirit of the Woodstock nation and shared it all with us through his book.

    If you have any interest in the history of Woodstock, you are certain to enjoy this book.
