This was without a doubt the best and most enjoyable book I ever read. I have since read many other Halberstam books. Having lived through the fifties, then reading about all the various events and creations of that time was an eye opening experience. I was absolutely struck by the WOW effect and could not wait for the next scenario. Hated to reach the end and will read it again before I leave. Any reader will be amazed at the things that came about during the FIFTIES.
This is a great book about the 50s - puts much into perspective, especially for those of us born in that decade! I wish I could post my copy, but I my dog got ahold of the cover and it is taped together! Still readable if anyone wants it.
