Here are what a few eminent American writers have said about the book:
"Jonathan Leaf almost makes the '60s worth it in this merciless debunking of our decade of shame. Fun, informed - and, above all - valuable."
Rich Lowry, Editor-in-Chief, National Review
"Has any decade been more mythologized than the 1960's? I doubt it. Read Jonathan Leaf, who corrects and debunks the conventional wisdom--and who also teaches us interesting and important things about that time, and ours."
William Kristol, Former Editor-in-Chief, The Weekly Standard
"'I believe in yesterday', sang the Beatles. But do you remember it? Jonathan Leaf gives a droll and provocative account of the myths--often self-serving--that have grown up around the sixties like weeds, and clears them away."
Richard Brookhiser, author of Right Time Right Place: Coming of Age with William F. Buckley Jr. and the Conservative Movement
