Keenly-written, humorous and all-encompassing. I am so enjoying this fantastic index of pop-culture. David's engaging writing style and witty asides are so easy to relate to for a Generation X kid like me. Very thorough cataloging of characters, shows, music, toys, food, products. Great bits of trivia, and the context things are put into in the broader picture of the times. This guy did his research. Plus, he lived alot of this stuff too, lending an invaluable personal touch. Arranged encyclopedia style, it's also a book you can stop and start, put down and pick up anytime, any place. Great purchase.

This almost everything, (but not) pop culture book, is really very good, almost great.

It has classic TV shows, movies, top 40 music, Fads,
commercials, classic toy's, classic candy bars, great Icons, comics, and much more, popular and not very popular, about stuff from the 1950's to 1990's.

Babyboomers should have fun browsing in this book, but younger and older should like this book also.

The biggest problem with this book, is putting it down.

A book with, The Beatles, Jonny Quest, Coca Cola, Captain Kangaroo, Gilligan's Island, Hot Wheels, Barbie, Mini Skirts, The Flintstones, and much much more in one book can't be all bad.

Almost everything? almost, and almost everybody, should have fun reading this book.

very interesting read. Takes me back to the old days. They didn't leave a thing out -- except JELLO pudding pops….

I loved this book! Much fun going back to all the fads and Saturday morning cartoon shows of yesteryear! Buy it!

Really brings one back to childhood without pandering. Also a great way to introduce younger folks to what you grew up with

I love this book. What a stroll down Nostalgia Lane... ;) My only complaint is that there are no pictures on the inside of the book at all. You can read about things, but if you're trying to explain to a child or someone who does not know, pictures would be nice. I like this book but I will be on the lookout for one with pictures.

I will use this book as a reference. As I went through it I caught myself smiling and laughing to myself because it truly was and is a trip down memory lane. Good memories! It made me wish I still had some of those items that made growing up so much fun. Love it!
great book
